General Douglas MacArthur said, "There are two things worse than death. One is to lose your freedom and the other is to lose your honor."
A person cannot thrive or reach their full potential in an atmosphere of dishonor. Even Jesus was limited in what He could do in his hometown because of the lack of honor. Honor is essential but it is not automatic. It must be taught by precept and example. Not only should the significance and value of honor be taught, but also the blessings and rewards. Honor will always cost you something. You can respect with words, but you honor with substance.
