Honor is an incredibly humbling concept. It is something that is often overlooked in our culture, yet incredibly vital to maintaining healthy relationships. It is the grease in the wheels of life. It needs to be articulated vocally, and lived out in daily practice.
We couldn’t think of a more fitting day to be thinking about and discussing honor than on this Mother’s Day at VOUS Church. It was a Sunday full special moments, serenades, and even gifts as we celebrated all the mothers, the grandmothers, and the mothers to be.

Honor Is Our Calling
We are vocal with our honor, meaning we are not stingy with our words. We submit to leadership and are thankful for spiritual authority. We choose joyfully to submit to those God has placed over us. We honor and care for those God has placed under us.
“You can’t sow dishonor and expect honor”Rich Wilkerson, Jr.
The word honor is to esteem greatly or to put weight on something. The culture of honor is about putting weight on people, things, and on God. Establishing a culture (and in today’s world, a counterculture) of honor positions you to receive, it makes room for greatness to come forth. You cannot receive from that which you do not honor. It’s important to keep in mind that we need to be constantly honoring those above us, those under us, and those around us.
It’s important to let this, and all seven values, resonate within our souls so that we may walk out of our Sundays and into our week with a firm foundation in growth.
