#AtoZChallenge - Honor and Proverbs 31

Honorable - worthy of honor and respect.

12)  She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

When you care for someone, you treat them with respect, and want the best for them.  There is no saying one thing and doing another.  You say the same things about them when they are not around or when they are right there with you.

31)  Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

To give an example, when someone creates something online - with words of power, with their camera, with their paints, fabrics or other medium, you give credit where credit is due - and give the artist the fruit of his or her hands.  

Honor does not mean you have to like or agree with everything you see or read.  And there is no honor in 'kicking a person when they are down'.  If you think something can be done better another way, of course voice your opinion openly and honestly, with respect for the other person's spirit.  In this manner, your own honorable ways will bring praise to your gate.  Actions speak louder than words.

Share with us today what honor means to you.  Thank you so much for being here!

  1. Honor is both respect and acknowledgement.

  2. When you honor someone else you do the same to yourself. And when you dishonor another, it is also you you are dishonoring. We are all equal and deserving of honor.

  3. Honor is being present, respectful, gracious and kind to all living things. After that, we are only left with love.
