DAY 161

1 Peter 2:16-18 16As free, and not using your liberty for a cloak of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. 17Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

Honor - treat with respect.
That is not easy to honor all others. In fact, our society takes great joy in mocking everyone, especially those in authority.

And by so doing, we are not fearing God.

I would think the Lord knows what He is doing. He places authority over us - like it or not.

Along the same idea of forgive so you will be forgiven, give honor to others in the spirit of grace and you will receive grace.

Let this day be one where we walk in honor, respecting others despite what our natural mind wants to do, seeing with eyes set on heavenly things not earthly, and know that the Lord sees us and knows our hearts.

Rejoice for in Him it is all good.
