Apostle Grace Lubega
Romans 13:7 (KJV); Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
A great man honours anything that grows him.
If the doors of greatness must open for you, then you ought to learn and master this principle.
There are people whom God has placed below you but who contribute greatly to your vision. Do you honour them?
Some people only know how to honour those above them and dish out the second-class citizen treatment to everyone below them. That is not the way of great men.
While it is a good thing to honour those greater than you, you also must make a practice of honouring those lesser than you as long as they are contributors to your dream.
If you are a pastor, do you honour those that serve you, do you recognise their efforts and labours, do you bless them?
If you are a supervisor, do you compliment your team or is it your strategy to criticize, condemn and expose them as incompetent?
If you know that anyone plays an active part in your ministry, business or career, learn to honour them, the doors of greatness will continually open for you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: A great man honours anything that grows him
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Wisdom is at work in me, to extend honour to whom honour is due. I speak evil of no man and seek to bless, never to curse or bring shame to anyone I relate with. In this understanding, I build relationships that bring glory to Your name. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
