Good men honor others. 5.6.11 & 10..2.12

Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Romans 12:10

As life goes on, I see that we are all by nature selfish and insecure…some hiding it better than others. We all second guess ourselves, daily working to maintaining momentum as we work out God’s purpose in all areas of life. What amazes me is a majority of people become so unhappy that they withhold honoring and encouraging others due to their own insecurity and selfishness. They think…why make someone else feel better when I am so miserable and discouraged. Rare is the man who is secure enough to take delight in honoring others…speaking little of themselves, showing genuine affection for others while expecting nothing in return. Action. My sons, strive to be that man, one who with each human encounter of the day, genuinely seeks to bless the other person. A simple truth in life is that people don’t care to hear others talk about themselves…they want to be heard and taken interest in…so knowing that, speak little of yourself unless asked and always proactively seek to encourage and honor others.
