(Deuteronomy 5:16 NKJV) “Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God has commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may be well with you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you. ”
Honor is living with a high standard of integrity and treating others with due respect. We are living in a society that has little or no place for honor. The system of honor has been removed from most homes. No wonder there is so much chaos in this generation.
Honor naturally leads to favor. How can you expect God to release His force of favor upon you when you are not willing to put Him first in your life? The fear of the Lord is having due respect and honor for Him. This according to the Scripture is the beginning of wisdom.
As we begin to restore the value of honor in our relationship with God, we will see the hand of God’s favor like never before. As believers, we have been called to honor our Heavenly Father, His Word and His Spirit in our lives.
You are also called to honor the authorities God has placed in your life. These include your parents, bosses at work, spiritual leaders and every other authority over your life. When you treat authorities rightly, you will live well and enjoy divine favor.
