Our Moral Compass: Honoring Others

“When we focus on honoring others as our mission in life, differences fade. Prejudice becomes a foreign concept.”

-Miles McPherson

Honoring others. What does that mean to you in this day in age? For most it is when we hold someone in high regard and admiration. We give them the respect that they righteously deserve. In today’s quote Pastor Mile McPherson that our mission in life should be to honor others. What’s most important in what he says is that in doing this simple act of kindness our differences fade and prejudice becomes unrecognizable. Just thinking about that warms my heart.
