Study the law of honor!
Honor is the willingness to magnify difference instead of weakness.
Today, sow honor as a seed of respect and of recognition.
honor will compensate and silence all the doubts about every other weakness in your life.
Jesus judged others by their willingness to show honor. Mary demonstrated honor when she washed the feet of Jesus in Matthew 26: 7 – 13.
the fragrance of honor is as distinctive as the odor of dishonor!
Learn this lesson today: never evaluate people by their experience. Never evaluate people based on their resumes. Do you know of anyone with a greater resume than lucifer? He worked next to God for eons!
Evaluate people by their code of honor.
Diligence in the work place is proof of honor.
Diligence is immediate attention to an instruction. Delayed obedience is the proof of dishonor.
Those who honor you qualify for a different relationship with you. A close, growing, and long-term relationship!
In ministry I’ve noticed that personality is persuasive…and incredibly deceptive. But the willingness to respect the law of honor will prevent a thousand nights of weeping from a broken heart 💔!
Rewarding people according to their need is rarely remembered or even celebrated for long. But responding to people proportionate to their honor is biblical.
“Honor your father and mother”—this is the first commandment that embodies a promise— “so that it may go well with you, and you may live long in the Land.”
Jesus did not habitually go home with pharisees to present them a seminar on kingdom of God dynamics!
Yet, he went home with Zacchaeus a despised tax-collector just because of the law of honor in Luke 19: 1 – 9.
Law of Honour
Remember the story of the prodigal son? The younger son sneered at the lifetime generosity, teaching and provision of his loving father. He even had the inappropriate boldness to ask for something he had not earned – his share of his father’s property!
The first clue to dishonor is the request for something unearned!! No wonder the father did not chase the prodigal son down the road begging him to return!!!
Dishonor is a choice…a character decision.
