Always Begin With Honor

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Acts 26:2

King Agrippa, I consider myself fortunate to stand before you today as I make my defense against all the accusations of the Jews.

O-bservation:

While in Caesarea waiting for his extradition to Rome, the King of that region, Agrippa II, came to hear Paul’s defense of the accusations leveled against him by the Jews. Paul began by saying, “King Agrippa, I consider myself fortunate today to speak with you.” Whenever I read these words spoken by the Apostle Paul, my first thought is, “Always Begin With Honor.”

A-pplication:

We know that King Agrippa II was not an honorable man. He was young and not trusted by the Roman Emperor. The Emperor gave him one of the smallest territories to lead of any king during that time. And, as mentioned in previous posts, he was living with his sister Bernice in a sexual way. Although a tremendous threat to the Jewish establishment at that time, St. Paul was a Christian first. History has borne out just how great a figure he was. Yet, when first meeting this small human who few speak of today with any amount of grace, the great Apostle Paul honored him. If someone of such high esteem chose honor, what should we do? I say, “Always Begin With Honor.” We can’t lose.

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

This passage of scripture always gets me when I’m about to spout off to someone I disagree with. I’m asking You for help this AM. Help me to “Always Begin With Honor.” Amen
