“Honor God in all you do.”
Those are the words I see when I open up my cell phone. I put them there after hearing that phrase somewhere. I don’t recall where, but it was a phrase I wanted to ingrain into my heart.
It’s a good reminder of the kind of person I want to be. It’s a good reminder of what I want my priorities to be when I deal with things in life.
When I’m mad about something… I want to honor God in the middle of that anger.
When my feelings have been hurt… I want to honor God as I deal with that hurt.
When God gives me responsibility or power… I want to honor God in that elevated position of authority.
As I raise my children and as a wife… I want to honor God as I carry out those roles.
Whatever it is that I run across in life – I want to be honorable, act honorable, and live honorably.
It says so much.
