Honour is living with a sense of respect for what you believe is right. It is living by the virtues, living up to the gifts which the Creator placed within you. When you are honorable, you don't have to feel ashamed of who you are or what you are doing. You are worthy of the respect of others. You set a good example. People of honour distinguish themselves by doing what is just, regardless of what others are doing. It is a path of integrity.
I am practicing Honour when I...
- Believe I was created noble
- Keep my agreements
- Speak respectfully to others
- Do what I believe is right no matter what
- Set a good example for others
- Avoid doing things which make me feel ashamed.
I am honourable. I keep my agreements and treat others with respect. I live by the virtues. I care about doing the right thing.
