FORGOTTEN VIRTUES

Honor

March 1, 2020


Jesus left there and went to His hometown, accompanied by His disciples. When the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard Him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given Him, that He even does miracles! Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t thisMary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t His sisters here with us?” And they took offense at Him. Jesus said to them, “Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor.”

--Mark 6:1-4 NIV

RESPECT IS EARNED, HONOR IS GIVEN


(Jesus) could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. And He was amazed at their lack of faith.

--Mark 6:5-6

WHO ARE WE CALLED TO HONOR?


1) OUR PARENTS

Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land your God is giving you.

--Exodus 20:12 NIV

2) THOSE IN AUTHORITY

Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe...respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.

--Romans 13:7 NIV

3) OUR PASTORS AND CHURCH LEADERS

The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and

teaching.

--1 Timothy 5:17 NIV


Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.

--Romans 12:10 ESV

THE REASON OUR CULTURE IS DISHONORING IS BECAUSE PEOPLE AREN'T HONORING GOD


You who fear the Lord, praise Him! All your descendants of Jacob, honor Him! Revere Him, all you descendants of Israel!

--Psalm 22:23


The Lord says, "These people come near to Me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me..."

--Isaiah 29:13
