For years, I’ve been teaching, writing, speaking, and coaching on honor and how to express it in our families, churches, organizations, and communities. And for years, I’ve received the same feedback and questions around this powerful, challenging, and frequently misunderstood and misapplied concept, such as:
- “You say that people of honor must be powerful, but to a lot of people, ‘powerful’ means dominating and selfish. What does it mean to be powerful?”
- “If respecting our freedom and the freedom of others is crucial to practicing honor, what do we do when people cannot handle their freedom?”
- “We tried to honorably confront someone, and the person refused to ‘clean up his mess.’ What do we do now?”
- “I really don’t like confrontation. Doesn’t honor mean we should get along without conflict?”
- “If we’re all trying to honor one another equally, does that mean there shouldn’t be any leaders?”
- “Why does ‘honor’ always seem to turn into ‘entitlement’?”
The Foundations of Honor course addresses these questions and others through a comprehensive study of the core values, practices, and cultural effects of honor. Clear biblical teaching and illustrations, along with provoking questions and targeted action points, equip and train you to examine your own foundations and build a solid foundation of honor in your life, home, business, church, and community. The Foundations of Honor Life Academy course is a 10-session teaching suitable for both individuals and groups.
