An Attitude of Honor
By Joel Osteen - May 31, 2010
All throughout scripture, we see that God blesses an attitude of honor. In Exodus, it says that when we honor our parents, we are promised long life. In Proverbs, when we pursue righteousness, we will find life, prosperity and honor.

To show honor simply means that you give respect and recognition. There are many ways to show honor with your attitude, words and actions. I believe that as we humble ourselves and show honor to others, we will reap a harvest of honor in our lives in return.

Today it is Memorial Day in America. It's a time when we honor all those who have given their lives in service for this country. "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13, NIV). As we remember what these brave men and women did, let's honor the gift they have given us by saying thank you by choosing to love and honor others.

Victoria and I also want to honor all those who are serving in our armed forces along with their families who have sacrificed so much. We appreciate you and love you and pray for God's peace, protection and provision over every area of your lives.
