Don’t Surrender Your Honor

I’m Dr. Bob, and for just a Mentoring Minute, I want to caution young people who might be listening. Actually, it’s good for old guys like me too. Proverbs 5:8-9 warns us not to surrender our honor. If you do, three things will happen. First, you will fight a sense of guilt and shame for years to come. Second, you will fight a sense sorrow, and third, you will fight a sense of bitterness, because of what happened through your own bad judgment. It’s not easy to win these fights. If you give your honor away, you will discover how precious it was when you had it, and how sad it is now that you lost it. Here is a teachable truth. There are no refunds for spent honor. There is, however, a way for you to turn from all the bitterness and rebuild your life. It will take an effort for you to journey back to wholeness, but if you are willing, it’s one in which God will order your steps and walk with you. I’m Dr. Bob. Write me at Dr.Bob@mentoringministry.com and tell me about the joy of your new start with our forever-faithful God.
