Many speak of peace. If we truly want it, we will create it.
In order to do so, it’s imperative that we as individuals have a very clear and complete
understanding of who we are, and what we truly believe. Honor is living what you
say you believe, without compromise.
No one can take away your honor, you must surrender it. No one can give you honor.
You create it. Your honor is unique to You.
Honor is not that hard to get: sit down, identify what you really believe, and act
in accordance with those beliefs. You can only say you believe something if it affects
Two thousand years of worshiping the Prince of Peace... where's the peace?
Don’t surrender your honor for the sake of church authority!
…for honor is born through the keeping of your word, being yourself most firmly guided
through the tenets of your faith.
Remember well and practice daily the rules of honor and integrity, for a life without
honor is a dark and burdensome thing, and except you possess within yourselves the
light of integrity, then shall your life appear as dark and filled with trouble.
Commit yourself with confidence to those who live honorably, but withhold your hand
from those who have no honor; accepting from such neither favor nor advantage, for
it is unseemly that those who live honorably should prove indebted to those who have
no honor: For what communion has light with darkness?
Be you, therefore, as one made firm of mind and deeply fixed within, being yourselves
neither swayed nor moved midst blame or praise, but being yourselves most firmly
committed to do the goodly thing; not yielding to the smallness of others, but cleaving
with steadfast heart to the things which come from God, for in God alone shall you
find the beauty of yourselves.
Causing that you should show towards all men, whether good or bad, a kind and courteous
manner, made of grace and art together; for except you take joy in the happiness
and well-being of others, you yourselves will not be happy, becoming within yourselves
devoid of every beauty, being instead consumed by envy and petty jealousies filled
with vain and empty wants.
