Give due honor and be blessed

In our society, we tend to honor those we like. If you are outside of one’s the inner circle of ...

With mindsets like these, it is a fact that there is no time for the elderly.

First Timothy 5:1-2 directs us, “never speak sharply to an older man (or woman), but plead with him (or her) respectfully, just as though he were your own father” . . . “treat the older woman as your mother.”

Remember, we brought nothing into this world and when we die, all that we have accomplished will be left here. While we are in this world, we must live the best we can, but not at the expense of another human being.

Honor to your employers

So many time individuals say that they are “saved, sanctified, and filled with the Holy Spirit,” but their performance, or should I say, lack of performance, instantly tells anyone watching that the employee has not told the truth.

The Word of God says in 1st Timothy 6:1-2, work hard for your employers and respect them, even if they don’t respect the glory of the God in you.

To never let it be said that Christians are not good workers.

If the employer is a Christian, that is no excuse to do less work. Rather, the Christian should work harder because a brother or a sister in the faith is being helped by your efforts.

Honor to God

In Psalm 29:2, David admonishes us to “give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.”

In addition to the honor we should give to others, we must also give honor ultimate sacrifice, and for his mercy and his grace.
