I have had a few conversations recently with leaders about building a culture of honor among staff. How do we build a biblical culture of honor—one not just built on status or position but on valuing one another?

The foundation for building a culture of honor is to honor our fathers and mothers. Many people could write a positive version of their childhood that would be entirely accurate, but they could also write a negative version that would be true. Honoring imperfect fathers and mothers requires actively choosing to forgive the bad and remember the good. I think those principles also apply to building a culture of honor in a staff.
