Honor Begins At Home
Last week I had a good conversation with some friends in New Zealand. When I discussed a problem I was having with an organization not keeping its commitment, my friends told me the main problem was one of HONOR. They suggested I point that out to the organization leaders and ask for that organization to honor me. It worked and was really simple.
The discussion with my friends began a process of self-introspection, in which I have begun asking myself, “How good a job am I doing honoring people in my life, especially those closest in my family?” It’s becoming clearer and clearer to me that I’d rather love and serve a few people very well than lots and lots of people and half-way.
Jesus had only 12 main disciples and He poured His life and teaching into them. It’s very easy to dilute your impact by pouring too much energy into too many people. Who are the most important people in your personal life and work? And how are you demonstrating your love to them in real terms?
On October 1, I received an email from Nancy Slocum titled “LOOKS LIKE A MUST SEE MOVIE: COURAGEOUS.” In her email, Nancy wrote, “Spread the word. It’s a clarion call from the Lord for men and the next generation of fathers to step up in their role as FATHERS / SPIRITUAL LEADERS and into their full destiny. It’s all about HONOR. It’s time for Christian families to stand up and stand out to be the most powerful role model for the family unit for the world to see … not the other way around! It all starts at home and it’s not too late even if our children are grown! God help and teach us by Your Spirit and have mercy upon us!”
So what? Now what?
Honor Begins At Home
The movie Courageous is a great family film and was made by the creators of Fireproof. The movie slogan is “Honor begins at home.” If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend you check it out.
