The Effect of Honor

Matt Brown Week 7

An old commandment that translates weirdly to our modern world is - you shall honor your father and mother. It's a command that focuses on the importance of respecting family and it bleeds out into other relationships too. In our modern digital world, the way we often interact with each other is anything but honorable - what might happen in our culture if we let the command to honor our parents affect us at a deep level?

As you consider the topic of honor, what comes to your mind? Is there anyone in your life right now that you are struggling to honor? Ask God to help you see those areas where He has shown honor to you, and invite Him to show you how you can show honor to that person. Confess any pride that may be present, and ask God for eyes to see that other person the same way He sees them.

Over the next 10 weeks, Sandals Church embarks on a journey to reimagine the 10 commandments as the rules and rhythms for a new life that God invites us into as we follow His Son, Jesus Christ. These 10 rules were not the way into a new life but a sign that God’s people were delivered to live a new life. First came deliverance and freedom. Then followed the rules for living, not the other way around.
