Yesterday, we talked about obedience. Today we will discuss honor. Honor is simply the “attitude of obedience.” Obeying our parents is our main task when we are young, but honoring them should continue for their entire life and even beyond death. Perhaps one of the best ways we can honor our parents is to pass on their Christ-honoring values to our children, if that is what they exhibited. Honoring involves all that we as sons and daughters do with our lives; the way we work and talk, the values we hold, and the morals we practice.
1. In what ways are you showing honor and respect to your parents or family members?
2. Are you living in a way that would bring honor to them? Why or why not?
Challenge: If you have been lacking in the “honor” area, commit to change that today. Pray for the Holy Spirit to give you the help you need to honor well.
