'There are some that say there is nothing good that comes from television. Some others think it is just a mind numbing escape from reality. Well, I want to provide tid-bits of wisdom picked up from all my no good, mind numbing t.v. watching just to prove there is a little wisdom to be learned from it all.'
From the show
Phil Robertson - "Don't touch her below the neck until you sign the dotted line."
In honor of their season premiere tonight, I thought it appropriate to have a quote from one of the Robertson's today. And speaking of honor, where has honoring others gone to? Especially when speaking about honoring your loved one. As a refresher (for myself and for y'all), here is the definition and synonyms of honor.
|Honor: high respect for; esteem. Purity; chastity; - a term applied mostly to women, but becoming uncommon in usage.|
Synonyms: blamelessness, irreproachability, nobility, reputability, respectability, reverence, veneration, virtue.
Reverence is a feeling of deep respect and devotion.
Veneration is both the feeling and the reverential expression of respect, love, and awe.
So, how can we be a more honoring society? By honoring those God put in our lives as God desires us to honor them. And, I believe, that's what Phil is ultimately saying here when he was saying this to his granddaughter's boyfriend. Have a relationship before marriage that is honoring to each other and to God's design for relationships and marriage. Be pure with each other, blameless before man and God in your actions, have that deep reverence for your loved one that their virtue is irreproachable.
