When we are showing honor to other people there is a commanded blessing that is returned to us in our lives. By honoring other people, treating them as we would like to be treated ourselves; we are showing others that we care for them. If you want to see more of God’s goodness in your life show honor to others and He will bless you. When we pour out the blessing of honor God will make all things well in our lives. By showing honor to the people in our lives we will surely enjoy life to the fullest, and when we honor God each day He will bless us with His favor.
Joel quoted these verses of Scripture:
This is the information from This Week’s Message page about today’s broadcast titled Show Honor by Joel Osteen:
Ephesians 6:2 says, “’Honor your father and mother’—which is the first commandment with a promise—”
Everywhere we go, we should look for an opportunity to bring honor to others in our conversations and the way we treat people. Where there is honor, there is promotion. If we would show more honor, we would not only have better relationships, but we would enjoy our life a whole lot more. Just like the little foxes spoil the vine, it’s the little acts of dishonor that bring strife and discord in our lives. At the root of most discord and lack of blessing is dishonor. Want to see change in your life? Show more respect and honor to those in your life. Set out to honor someone – your spouse, a coworker, a friend, your parents. Develop a culture of honor everywhere you go no matter who you come across or where you are. The amount of honor you show will be directly related to the amount of God’s favor you will see. If you will make it a priority to show honor wherever you go, God promises all will be well with you. Because you’re honorable, you will have honor in return and live a blessed, satisfied, prosperous life.
Honor others and be blessed by God!
