Some To Honour
“But in a great house there are not only vessels of
gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth;
and some to honour, and some to dishonour.”
II Timothy 2:20
Our name carries with it a testimony. When others hear our name, they immediately associate it with the character we demonstrate. We are either vessels of honour or vessels of dishonour.
The day is coming when your character will be put to the test by an issue that arises between you and someone else. You can respond honourably by seeking a hearing with this individual and a peaceful resolve or you can stiffen your neck and harden your heart as you dishonour God’s name and your own name.
There are enough burdens to carry in our struggle with the world, the flesh and the devil. Proverbs 6:3 states, “Do this now, my son, and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself, and make sure thy friend.”
God help us to have a testimony of honour and not to carry burdens He never intended for us to bear.
“I am one of them that are
peaceable and faithful…”
II Samuel 20:19
