LEARN TO HONOUR (2) - MALACHI 1:6-8, 1 SAMUEL 2:27-34



God has placed honour on certain things, and you must honour them. Whatever God has honoured, you must honour and whoever God has honoured, you must honour. Let me show you some of the people and things you must honour as you go through life.
The first person you must learn to honour in your life is God. Failure to honour and put a worthy value on God and the things that concern Him will put you in trouble. God does not joke with honour and if you fail to give it to Him or share the honour that belongs to Him with any other person, it will put you in trouble. God must be different and special to you. There are some things that you must not put a carnal value on. When you bring anything to God, what He will use to measure and weigh what you are bringing is the honour behind it; that is the weight. I believe you have heard people say something like “you are weighty in my heart”. That is honour, and God must be weighty in your heart.
When God sent a prophet to Eli that He would judge him and his house, it was because of that same simple matter; honour. You can see the problem of Eli according to the Bible; he placed a high value upon his sons above God. Ensure that you do not honour anything above God in your life. Honour the Lord and everything that God has placed honour upon. Honour God with your substance, life, worship and everything you have. When you honour God and everything that God has honoured, you will enjoy the honour of God everywhere you go.


PRAYERHoly Spirit, teach and help me honour the Father. Help me honour what the Father honours correctly in Jesus’ name. Amen!
