Is glory something that God has all there is of, and He doesn’t share it with anyone? By being recognized for our service are we in danger of stealing glory from God? Is it wrong to want to feel honored even as we serve Him?
In this audio podcast, Mike O’Quin interviews Steve Hawthorne over these core motivational questions. Steve argues that God is so rich in glory, He can bestow honor on us without taking anything away from His own glory. In last week’s podcast, we talked about the essential essence of glory, and in this week’s conversation we focus more on the essential essence of honor. “Make your life a party by honoring other people, and get good at honoring God and giving him thanks at every excuse you can find,” Steve says, “and you’re going to find a natural humility that forms in you.”
Steve is the director of WayMakers, a mobilization ministry focused on seeing Christ glorified by obedient, worshiping movements in every people group. He is also the co-founder of the popular Perspectives course, and the writer of an article in that reader, The Story of His Glory, soon to come out in book form.
