The way in which you have proved yourselves by this service will bring honor and praise to God. You believed the message about Christ, and you obeyed it by sharing generously with God’s people and with everyone else. 2 Corinthians 9:13 (CEV)
Honor is defined as showing respect to or holding in high esteem. It is reserved for someone considered of high value and worth. It is for that one who has set themselves apart by their exceptional accomplishments. In our daily lives, we honor those who sacrifice their time taking care of others. We honor those that have excelled in their careers. How much more should we honor God? He is our creator and gave His son so we could spend eternity with Him. He is not looking for trophies and rewards for us to show Him honor. He asks us to be generous with the blessings He has given us. We can honor Him by serving others. We can honor Him by spending time doing the things He asks us to. We can honor Him by giving when and where He tells us to. We can show Him honor by sharing our lives generously. Take time today to ask God how He wants you to honor Him.
