Being Honorable


I have made my share of mistakes. But I have always tried to be honorable by standing up and acknowledging the mistake. Some have cost me everything. And it took years for the pain to go away. It is funny, that I have a high tolerance for pain. I have been a Christian for 39 years and it doesn’t get any easier. When I was young, I never wanted to be blamed for anything. It was because of the fear of rejection. It was strong in my youth. God took me from that scared, easily frighten young man to a Christian. I had to walk where no one else was. I went through trials without anyone holding my hand. I was so afraid sometimes shook in my shoes. But I had to learn what honor was and how to stand when no one else did. Many times, I was belittled and berated for my mistake. But I had to stand with honor, if I was going to be an example of Jesus on this earth. Being honorable is a life-long task of which I don’t want to shrink from. Romans 13:7 “Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.”
