Here’s a great post I found on Buddy Cremeans blog today:
Buddy Cremeans writes, “For months wherever I turn, God has been UP in my grill about Honor. I just can’t shake it. God has repeatedly pressed me with His principle that runs His universe…God Honors Honor. Too often God CANNOT and WILL NOT honor us and release His blessing to us because we are blocking giving honor to Him or others.
Are you a blessing blocker?
Is there someone you are blocking or withholding honor from? Maybe it is God. Has God laid something on your heart and you are just procrastinating? If so you are blocking God. Maybe you are blocking honor from a spouse, a sibling, a parent, a coworker, a boss, a pastor? If so, you are blocking God. God never asked us to honor people only if they are perfect… Why? Because we are not perfect beings, we are human beings. However, God instructs ALL of us in scripture (1 Peter 2:17) to HONOR ALL PEOPLE. Show respect to ALL people and treat everyone with dignity.
WHO are you withholding honor from?
Let me encourage you today to quit blocking God’s blessing. Send an email, make a phone call, write a letter, send a card, make a visit… Do whatever it takes to release honor to them so God can release honor to you!
God Honors Honor.”
