What Goes Around Comes Around January 31
Food for Thought: Ps. 31:19
If a child consistently shows honor to his parents, then an attitude of trust in the relationship develops. The same goes for a husband who honors his wife, or vice-versa. The way they talk together is at a level that no one else has with them. The child or spouse becomes very confident; his or her self-esteem is healthy; even when around other people, the child or spouse knows who he or she is. Honor produces confidence in the relationship.
That’s exactly what happens with us, those who reverently fear the Lord. He honors us in life. That, in turn, produces an assurance, a security, in us that is evident no matter where we are or what we are doing. It’s not pride, though some from the world or from the “religious” community may perceive it as such. It’s confidence in who we are in Christ.
When we reverently fear Him and give Him honor, He honors us, and it shows.
