I really like this word. It is a word that has become a mantra that I want to live by. The word honor brings with it high respect, distinguished, distinction & consistent. To be honorable is to cultivate a lifestyle with these characteristics. My heart was moved when Paul tells the church at Corinth about being honorable. Check this out….
21 We are careful to be honorable before the Lord, but we also want everyone else to see that we are honorable. (2 Corinthians 8:21 NLT)
Paul writes this when he and his companions were trusted with handling the offering given from other churches. I believe handling someone else’s money requires great care and great systems of protection in place. I learned early in my real estate career how important trust is in this field. When there is a lot at stake, I want the most trustworthy and honorable person possible assisting me. I believe Christ followers should be above reproach, honest and honorable. I’m going to let this small verse settle into my heart. This is part of my personal mission statement. Several years ago I put my mission statement into writing. I now use it in my email signature.
