Today’s Scripture Selection: Hebrews 13:18
“Pray for us. We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to live honorably in every way.”
It seems to me that there isn’t a lot said about honor these days.
Oh, maybe at Boy or Girl Scout meetings, or among those serving in the military, that word is used. But I’m talking about at large – in society – amongst the common rank and file members of society.
It’s no secret that politicians rank among the lowest of those who are considered honorable. That’s a shame. But I can see how we’ve gotten this way. Some of their records are less than shining examples of honorable behavior.
I can recall how not too long ago one individual running for office wrote about how honor matters. I agree – but isn’t it sad that the issue even came up for discussion. Why wasn’t there more of a rousing response from the general public that said, “Of course honor matters! That goes without saying. What else you got?”
But instead it became a matter of national debate.
Contrast this with one servant of God’s desire to live and serve with a “clear conscience” and “honorably” in “every way.”
Honor matters. To everyone – but especially to those who claim to follow Christ.
Prayer: Lord, may I always do my best to live as an honorable member of your kingdom. AMEN.
