HONOR AFFIRMS VALUE
Honor recognizes and affirms how valuable and powerful other people are because they are made in His image and He died to restore them to relationship. We are significant. (Gen. 1:26; Eph. 4:22-24; Rom. 12:10)
The level of value we have for one another influences the measure of impact we have on each other. (Matt. 10:41; John 13:35; Phil. 2:1-4)
We call out the best in people and celebrate them in spite of our differences, responding to people based on who we are and their God-given identity, not simply their behavior or self-definition. (1 Cor. 12:18; 24-26, 14:3; Phil. 4:8)
Honor must be demonstrated through consistent respect in word and action toward those we lead, follow, love and disagree with. Honor avoids controlling others but does confront, limit and discipline when necessary.
(1 Cor. 13:1-7; 1 Cor. 4:13; 2 Tim. 2:11-16)
