√ Honor is GIVEN.
(1 Peter 2:13-17 NIV) Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.
(Romans 12:10 NIV) Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.

2. PRAISE them.
(James 3:9-10 NIV) With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.
3. PROTECT them.
(John 7:18 NLT) Those who speak for themselves want glory only for themselves, but a person who seeks to honor the one who sent him speaks truth, not lies.
√ The more I VALUE the more I get VALUE from it.
