Humility comes before Honor
Humility comes before honor.
The fear of the Lord is instruction in wisdom, and humility comes before honor.
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus’ precious name !
The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge and wisdom (Proverbs 1:7, Proverbs 9:10). Truly, our submission to the Lord our God in reverence and in humility lays the foundation. The foundation for our growth and guidance through Lord the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, through the Holy Spirit of God, we receive the true knowledge and wisdom. The wisdom to humbly yield to the Almighty God in all things and in the same way depend on His grace.
Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.Proverbs 1:7 NLT
Our humility towards God, helps us to yield to men also. Very truly, those who humbly walk in reverence and honor of our Living God, shall also walk with the same humility before men. The true children of God receive honor from both God and men by their humility. And it is indeed true to say that humility comes before honor. Only hypocrites act different. As the following verse says, haughtiness goes before destruction.
Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor.Proverbs 18:12 NLT
Therefore brethren, let us humbly walk in the sight of God. Let our actions be for the glory of the Living God in Jesus matchless name. Amen.
