Honor is a biblical principle and is deeply embedded in certain cultures. And yet, over-honor can be both destructive and dangerous. As leaders, how should we respond when we find ourselves being over-honored?
In Acts 14, as Paul and Barnabas spoke and healed a crippled man, the crowds began to praise them, calling them gods. In this moment, Paul and Barnabas responded with:
- A sense of urgency,
- A message of clarity, and
- A focus back to Jesus.
If you find yourself in situations of over-honor, I encourage you to respond the same.
