Some words were spoken about honoring others in your life.

Honor says “Where do I position myself to bring the best out of you,” not “What do I expect you to do for me”. 

“To show honor to someone is grace in action. Be excellent at handing out pockets of grace as people learn and grow, particularly when mistakes happen.”

“Honor is not about a person’s performance but their value in the image of God.”

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
This Holiday is about freedom.  There was a price for freedom, and many before us laid down their life so that we can make good/bed decisions.  We all made choices today and led the workout.  I encountered a group of PAX in F3 Low Country last week on vacation doing 25 burpees a day, each.  They have PAX who was diagnosed with Breast cancer, and although treatable, it was a reminder to them to take their health seriously.  They are doing 25 burpees a day as a reminder to get checked or seen by a doctor, and to not those things off.  Today we did burpees as a reminder to do the same.

Matthew 6:2-4

…2So when you give to the needy, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their full reward. 3But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.…

Why is this so hard?  It’s so tempting to humblebrag. Why is it not enough that my Creator sees me and my heart when I do a good deed? I have had several moments this year where I helped someone out, didn’t tell anyone, and it was so hard to not share about it.

I’m faced with asking myself, who am I doing this for? Is it really an act of love if I’m doing it for myself, for my own glory? My challenge for me and you is to ask God to put someone in your path that needs help. Ask God to give you strength and true love for Him and the person you are helping. Afterwards, go back to God and give Him the glory.
