• Honor means choosing the highest good from all of the options, rather than making a choice because it is convenient, safe or conventional. Yes, I do see it occasionally, I've seen people go all the way back to a store because they realize the cashier gave them too much change; I saw a neighbor stand up for someone because it was the right thing to do, although the neighbor could have suffered negative consequences; I know of many situations in which a person admitted fault when someone else was likely to be blamed. I think these are honorable actions.
  • I recently was studying from a book called "The Language of Sex", kind of a spiritual reconnect self help book. Anyway, one of the exercises in this book was a series of questions to your spouse regarding honor. The first question was 'what does honor mean to you?' His answer to this was "respect as in to superiors, parents and God." The next few questions addressed how you honor your spouse and how your spouse honors you. He had NO answers to these questions. He just didn't get it. I guess his definition of honor is just very different than mine and millions of other people, and he must think spouses are not worthy of "honor".
  • To me honor is saying what you mean and meaning what you say. I will not tell lies and I try to follow through on promises.
  • I really didn't get to answer the question about what honor means to me. Sorry I kinda got off on a tangent. Anyway, I feel like to be honored is to be cherished, respected and loved at any cost. To respect your in laws even when it is difficult is honoring your spouse. To love someone unconditionally is to honor them. Honor is the highest respect to anyone that warrants it, anyone in your life that you choose. The smallest of things like taking care of the house, doing the laundry, preparing meals, etc is honoring your husband. For a husband to honor his wife is to cherish her above ANYONE else and hear what she is saying and fulfilling her needs. I could go on and on, but that is really what i think in BIG nutshell. LOL.
  • It means you're American. We spell it "Honour"
  • Honor seems to be a rare commodity these days, but seeing those young men and women in the military gives me hope. Honor is keeping your word regardless of the cost. Honor is helping those weaker than you. Honor is never giving up no matter how difficult things become. Honor is never leaving others behind. Honor is standing up for the oppressed. Honor means courage, committment and self-sacrifice.
