At Northplace, we’ve become accustomed to using this statement: We honor up. We honor down. We honor all around.
“Honoring Up” means we honor God and those in authority over our lives. “Honoring Down” means we honor younger generations. It means we honor those who serve us in some way, whether it’s the waitress at lunch, the baggage handler at the airport, or the person you pay to mow your yard. “Honoring All Around” means showing honor to your peers and equals.
There are some incredible promises in scripture to people who understand and live out the concept of honor. God promises to reward honor. We continue to look at Abraham, but we’ll also look to the New Testament to see how honor invites God’s reward and blessing into our lives.
