Honor

Like snow in summer or rain in harvest, so honor is not fitting for a fool. Proverbs 26:1

God says in order to receive honor you have to become a man of honor. God also talks about humility preceding honor. In fact, humility creates the ability to give another person honor. Honor is a decision not a response. The model for that is God himself, where the bible says, “That God demonstrates his own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.”

 
God honored us by sending his son, it was a decision not a response. It wasn’t because we earned it, He just did it. God demonstrated that you give honor by saying to someone else that you have value and that you have worth and you have weight. That’s what God says about you and that is what we are to do with others.  God’s Spirit lives in you and the work of God’s Spirit in you is to make you like him. 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 says, “Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom, and we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lords glory are being transformed into his likeness with ever increasing glory which comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. ” God’s Spirit lives in you and the work of God’s Spirit in you is to make you like him. Let his spirit lead you to say and do what honors others.

 
Thank you Father for giving your truth that I may give it to others.
