Everyday I realize how unique each one of us truely is
and how important it is to honor each ones uniqueness.
When honor is omitted, problems occur:
1) The person who is not being honored is not going to feel
confident to be who God made them to be.
2) The person who is not honoring is also going to have a really
hard time finding out who they are in Christ.
Main point: God is being put out by our inability to be comfortable with our
gifted bro's and sis's.
1 Peter 2:16-17
"Live as free men, yet without using your freedom as a pretext for evil; but live as servants of God. Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear Good. Honor the emperor."
I heard in a teaching that the emperor Peter is choosing to honor here, is the one who killed him.
Blessed are the poor, Blessed are those who mourn, Blessed are the meek, Blessed are those who hunger and thrist for righteousness, blessed are the merciful, Blessed are the pure in heart, Belssed are the peacemakers, Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil agains you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecutes the prophets who were before you. Matthew 5:3-13 "The Beatitudes."
Check your beatitudes.
Become selfless for His sake.
