God: honor those who honor Him…
1 Samuel 2:30 (KJV) “Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed [that] thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.”
Respect in our society has deteriorated to a level that makes it a shame to speak the language many are fond of and ascribe as language of choice in how they communicate. It is broken down to the premise where honor and respect has been exchanged for debasement.
This makes you wonder at time when there is no separation in what a believer feed their spiritual man, there is a serious lack of discerning of how to treat the spirit of God who resides within us.
But God made it clear in His words that He is a honorable, pure, holy and jealous God and when we honor Him, the same treatment is return to us.
Today, as we go about our busy life, let’s be in retrospection and ponder what side of the coin we are currently treading.
