“And let us not be weary in well doing:
for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
God instructs us in Romans 13:7 to “Render therefore to all their dues…honour to whom honour” and in I Samuel 2:30 that “them that honour me I will honour”.
• A Faithful Man – read how God honoured Joseph in Psalm 105:17-22 and understand that God uses people to treat us in ways we do not deserve to prepare us for the honour we do deserve; that is coming our way.
• A Faithful Wife – “Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come” (Proverbs 31:25). She looks at the future and smiles because she knows “a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised” (vs. 30). Honour is coming to her house.
• A Faithful Child – children who obey and honour their parents have the promise from God “That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth” (Ephesians 6:1-3). Blessing and fullness of days are on their way to them.
Victor Frankel, who lived in a Nazi death camp, stated, “The prisoner who had lost faith in the future – his future – was doomed.” May God help us to “hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown” (Revelation 3:11). Don’t lose heart and stop short. Your labour is not in vain in the Lord. Do right and the honour that is traveling your way will soon reach its destination.
