Anyone who wants to be great must master the law of honor. This is the ability to recognize and discern those who are higher. The hierarchy of honor is set in place by God to lift those who recognize it. However, failing to follow the protocol of honor will leave you stranded.
Honor is a commandment that comes as an instruction. It means to respect and hold in high esteem and regard, recognizing the status of a person; to recognize that you are who you are and you are where you are because of the input of that particular person.
In life, there are people that you should honor always; We are commanded to honor the Almighty God. God commands us to honor our father and mother and promises us long life. We are to honor our spiritual parents for this is right and obey the Word of God they teach us. Our obedience to their teachings expresses honor.
Mentors must also be honored but they should never be exalted above spiritual parents. Among those that should be honored, God has ordained helpers over us. The married should also honor their spouses, for as you dishonor your spouse you dishonor yourself.
Honor is the path to greatness and we must never play with it! Obedience is a key of honor. Therefore, that which God tells you to do in His Word must be obeyed. We also express honor through words and gifts.
