Honor Or Praise?

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Acts 14:15
Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human, like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them.


While preaching in a place called Lystra, Paul healed a man who was crippled. When the people saw them, they began to worship Paul & Barnabas as Greek gods. They called them Zeus and Hermes. When they did this, Paul & Barnabas tore their clothes in humility and said, “NO! Don’t do this. We are only human like you and are here to bring you good news.”


Those who know me well know that honor is a real big deal for me. I want to honor all of God’s men and women. I believe there is something good in most all people, and one can choose to promote that as a way of honor. But the idea of praising a man or a woman is not the will of God in any way. The people mentioned in this story were praising these Apostles, and they would have nothing to do with it! We must honor all of God’s human race but praise only HIM!


Dear Jesus,
Today, once again, I choose to honor Your human creation but praise only You. Only YOU deserve the glory and the praise! Amen
