Honour helps you to change any situation that is interpersonal. Read why this is the case and why we need to choose to honour everyone.
I honour all people.
Respect everyone, and love the family of believers. Fear God, and respect the king. 1 Peter 2:17
Why should we honour everyone? Why would the Peter tell us to “honour all people”? Didn’t the king he told everyone to honour have Him die by upside down crucifixion?
He told us to honour everyone because. It’s what the Father has done for us.
Honour is when you change the relationship with another. It’s when you raise someone up to your level. You refuse to respond to them the way they respond you.
This is what the Father did for us when we became part of His family and He seated us in heavenly places.
Ephesians 2:4-6 (New Living Translation)
But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.
God has honoured us so we can honour everyone.
Jesus did it when He washed the feet of the one who would in minutes betray Him.
Peter tells us to do it for the King who would one day have him executed.
How will you honour everyone?
Celebrate their success, even if it takes away from your own.
Refuse to throw them under the bus. Don’t cover up incompetence, but don’t point it out publicly either.
Ask God, “What is the gold you see in them?” Compliment them on it.
