Today’s Jot: Honorable
My dad fought in both the Korean War, and the Vietnam war. He earned a Bronze Medal for his work to save his fellow comrades. That, I think… is honor!
(Not my Picture)
The father who raises his child, and stays faithfully by his wife’s side, is honor.
The child that steps in and stops another classmate from being bullied, is honor.
Helping another, when you see them struggling, is honor.
Giving of yourself, even when you have little of your own to offer, is honor.
Remaining true to yourself, in a world that finds morality an old foolish rule, is honor.
Working a job, to pay the bills, is honor.
Being a parent which consciously makes choices so their children don’t have to pick up the tap for their childish mistakes, is honor.
Remembering that people all over the world have rights, is honor.
Remembering to look at each person you come in contact with, is someone’s child, and is loved, is honor.
Remembering to care for yourself, so others won’t have to, is honor.
Remembering to be humble, when you’re no longer able to live on your own, due to ALS or some other debilitating disease, is honorable.
No matter how much the world tells us to change, to make everything okay, morality, compassion, self-sacrifice and giving, will always be, I think… honorable.
I’m going to break my normal format to state what is most important to me –
Falling on your knees, praying for forgiveness and asking Christ to save you -in a world that does not want you to believe in one God, is honor.
