Who are the people who have nurtured you at home and in the church?
They may not have been perfect, but God commands us to honor them.
Honor can be expressed in different ways.
We honor our parents and mentors when:
we respect them and their values;
we seek to emulate their example;
we hold them in high esteem;
we heed their counsel;
we speak highly of them;
we strengthen our relationship with them;
we thank them for what they have done for us;
we forgive their failures;
we carry on their legacy and perpetuate their vision;
we provide care and assistance when needed;
we pray for them.
Honor is simply another word for love.
I will seek ways to honor my parents, mentors and spiritual leaders.
