Bible Highlights: 2 Kings 1-4

2 Kings 2:2
Elijah said to Elisha: "Stay here, please, because Jehovah has sent me on to Bethel." But Elisha said: "As surely as Jehovah is living and as you are living, I will not leave you." 

Elisha is a great example of displaying Loyal Love at 2 Kings 2:2. He was determined to stick by his friend Elijah. He refused to abandon him even when given the opportunity. Loyal love is the kind of love that holds on and doesn't let go. While love and loyalty are both important qualities in a friendship, Loyal Love is different in that it will move us to act in behalf of our friends-like Elisha was moved to stick with Elijah.
