This is one very interesting proverb that proves the fact of loyalty. When we are loyal, respectful and obedient to our elders at home, we would never find it difficult to respect our elders wherever we go. But when we refuse to respect our elders at home we would find it difficult to respect others outside and would struggle with being loyal and obedient. This is why they say charity begins at home because we would end up damaging our reputation and future as well, when we are disrespectful and disloyal, we could also loose favour in the sight of people who ought to help us.
