Psalm 118:26-29 (NKJV)
26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
We have blessed you from the house of the Lord.
27 God is the Lord,
And He has given us light;
Bind the sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.
28 You are my God, and I will praise You;
You are my God, I will exalt You.
29 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.
If you were to look up HONOR in the dictionary you would find the top two definitions for the honor:
- High Respect; Esteem.
- A Privilege
And the top two definitions for the verb HONOR:
- Regard with Great Respect
- Fulfill or Keep (an agreement)
I love when I read about the definition of words and it provides me with new insights and motivations. For example, today after reading the the definition the word PRIVILEGE stuck out to me! IT is our PRIVILEGE to show honor to who honor is due.
Lord I pray today that I can teach and show my kids about honor. I pray to show them that it is an honor and blessing to give honor and Glory to God. I pray that they will view it as a privilege to lift the name of the LORD on high. I pray as they walk and play and see your Glory show that they will praise you for the what they see. I pray you will be blessed and honored by them. And I pray I will lead by example, showing and teaching them by also honoring You!
Join me in praying for our children to honor and bless God with their words, actions, and passions.
