Proverbs 3:3–4 (NLT)

3 Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.

4 Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation.

There is a lot of teaching about favor but not much regarding the “how to” of favor. Favor does not flow from man nor God to rebellion and sin. Favor flows to people who live lives of kindness and loyalty. A life of kindness and loyalty brings favor and a good reputation.
