Honor is the Badge of Life

Honor is the Badge of Life

The trophy ceremony is the announcement of the winner.  Honor is the highest level of respect, signifying conduct worthy of recognition. David asked in Psalms 8:4-5, “What is man that thou art mindful of him? And the sons of man that thou visited him?  For thou has made him a little lower than the angels and has crowned him with glory and honor.”

If you are never presented with a medal, trophy, or badge of honor, you are still held in the highest esteem by the Creator of the universe. God created us to reign in honor like a king.  We are God’s trophy when we make right choices and live our life in a way that is worthy of honor.

Psalm 15:4

“…He honoreth them that fear the Lord.”

Practical Application and Assignments:

We live in an honor oriented society.  The Boy Scouts of America are given badges when they pass the code of honor test.  Students with a 4.0 GPA are presented a certificate and recognized in the Student Honor Society.  The men serving in the military are honored with a Medal of Honor for bravery.  Olympic winners are given gold medals for their excellence in the sports arena…

  • “Give honor to whom honor is due.” Romans 13:7 Honor God by giving Him first place in your heart. Honor God’s Word by keeping His commandments. Honor your parents by respecting their authority. Honor your spouse by keeping your marriage vows. Honor others by treating them as you wish to be treated.
  • Go for the gold! The Scripture speaks of golden crowns in heaven, where God, Himself will reward those He has found faithful.
  • Receive a personal invitation to your own honor ceremony. Jesus said, “If any man serve Me, let him follow Me, and where I am there shall My servant be! If any man serve Me, him will My Father honor.” John 12:26.

“Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.” I Timothy 1:17.
