Are you looking for better relationships, a bigger promotion, more respect from those around you, or more favor in your life? Perhaps you need to remember….Honor begets honor.
In a society that highly focuses on self-gratification, today’s message “Honor Begets Honor” could be the key to unlocking your next level of leadership or promotion. Just as the scripture teaches us to “give and it shall be given”, so it is true as it relates to giving honor to others.
I love the visual I get when I think of the powerful honor shown in the many ranks of the military. Whether an officer feels like giving such respect to their commanding officers, it is an expected trait that comes with reward.
To Honor a Person: is to value a person with a fixed value or to highly esteem them by showing preference.
Note that honor is not dependent on the behaviors of the other person, but it is a “fixed” value one gives by showing preference to another. Whether you like someone or not….GIVE them a fixed value of respect if you want to receive equal or greater respect in return.
Giving honor to another is a strategic power move highly understood by leaders, for they know that to get honor, you must first give it away.
Dishonor: is treating someone as ordinary.
Dishonor is the essence of devaluing another person and is based on a fluctuating scale of emotions or circumstances.
To truly show honor is to give the gift of your respect, not based on how you feel, but what you know is right in the view of respect.
Honor does not wait for one to “deserve” it, but instead it is given due to the honor of the one giving the gift.
The story I share in today’s Secret Sauce Strategy will remind you of the value in GIVING honor as to create a law of attraction so honor comes your way. Listen now!
