Honorable: to do things that are honorable and not seek honor for them. (Larry P. Arn, president of Hillsdale College)

Honor seems to be a missing ingredient among many leaders in America. Almost every day newspapers, magazines, and TV newscasters report on some sort of scandals in business or politics. And too often, those who are not involved in dishonorable behavior are tooting their horns about their achievements. Arn’s definition sounds a lot like humility, doesn’t it?

If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. (James 3:13)
