Day 42 // May 27
“Honor enables us to see things from God’s perspective; when we see God rightly, we see everything and everyone else rightly. Honor enables us to step into the vision of others and see what they’re seeing. Honor helps us measure the treasure that is in others and receive the riches of the grace that are in them.” Dale Evrist
And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves(1 Thessalonians 5:12-13).
Let’s take some time today to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any place where we have dishonored God or any of the leaders that He has placed in our lives. As He shows us these areas, let’s repent and ask Him to forgive us of these wrong actions and attitudes. And let’s also ask the Lord if He would desire for us to go to anyone and ask them for forgiveness in person. Let’s make a fresh covenant and commit to the Lord to honor Him and all the leaders that God has given us in the body of Christ. Father, help us measure the treasure you have put in each of your children so that we can receive the riches of grace that are in them.
