Malachi 1:6 A son honoreth his father, and a servant his master: if then I am a father, where is mine honor? and if I am a master, where is my fear? saith Jehovah of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?
Why is it that we are able to honor people that we see and not the God of Heaven? God asks His people where His honor is. Sons honor their fathers, servants their masters, but none for the God who created us, will judge us, and has saved us!
We take God and His wishes lightly. We try to do what our parents want us to do. We show the proper respect for our employers but not to our God.
So here is the application for today, get in His book, read it, practice it. Get into prayer, ask God to direct your paths, consider Him, His will, and what would glorify Him with all that you do. Get into His house, don’t miss church, don’t be late to the services, come to hear from God. Honor God with your time, be diligent to use time for Him, get up early, seek a place to be alone with God, be in church. Honor God with your money, give, spend all your money on things that will please God, do not think that you can do with 90% what you want simply because you gave God 10%/
Decide today to honor God.
