You are Honored

you-are-honored

Do you know that you are honored?

God honors us! He gives us dignity, and nobody can take it away. In the beautiful passage of Isaiah 43:4, God says “You are precious in My sight, since you are honored and I love you…”

To honor means to regard with great respect.

Even though God will get all the glory and the honor for whatever He has done through us, God will commend us for what we did right. God “will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men’s hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God.” 1 Corinthians 4:5b God is pleased with us when we obey Him, and He will say to each of us who have been faithful: “Well done, My good and faithful servant.” (Matthew 25:21)

In the same way, we are to honor one another. Romans 12: 10 says we need to show honor to everyone: “Outdo one another in showing honor.”

Scripture points out specific people that we should be especially sure to honor. For example, we should show honor to our mother and father (Exodus 20:12)

honored

We are supposed to show honor to our pastors and leaders. (1 Timothy 5:17)

1 Peter 3:7 commands husbands to show honor to their wives as a fellow heir of grace.

Of course, we should also show honor to our husbands (Ephesians 5:33 says that the wife is to respect her husband.)

Honor is important in the way that we treat one another. We believe the best in each other.

Even if someone treats you in a dishonoring way, no one can take away your dignity, because God Himself gives you honor. So you are honored!

You can’t force others to treat you in a certain way, but you can treat others with honor.

    Amen. It’s amazing to realize that the most high desires to honour us despite our flaws and cracks. God also finds honour to be very important hence we should honor everyone

      I just can’t get over the fact that we will all receive our praise from God, where He will commend us for what we have allowed Him to do in our lives!
