BEFORE HONOUR IS HUMILITY
Proverbs 15:33 MESSAGE
Fear-of-God is a school in skilled living— first you learn humility, then you experience glory.
NEW KING JAMES
The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom,
And before honor is humility.
FIVE STEPS TO HONOUR
The christian life is a journey – of learning how to live in honour.
FEAR OF THE LORD
Step one – is learning to fear the Lord. To show respect – to seek His face – to long for His presence. To devour His word.
In God’s word – is the revelation of the way of honour.
Learning comes from instruction.
Instruction in righteousness – is far more profitable than inspiration in happiness.
Wisdom comes from godly instruction.
Three steps to wisdom.
Knowledge – acquisition
Understanding – assimilation
Wisdom – action
When godly wisdom reigns – it always produces humility.
Pride comes from wanting to be like a god.
Before sin can be halted,
Pride must be humbled.
The end of the matter is honour.
Honour God in all things.
Honour people in your world.
Honour will come to you.
