Malachi 1:6. “A son naturally honors his father and a slave respects his master. If I am your father, where is my honor? If I am your master, where is my respect? The Lord who rules over all asks you this, you priests who make light of my name! But you reply, How have we made light of your name?

That’s a good question for today. “How have we made light of God’s name?” When we fail to honor God or respect Him we are dishonoring His name. How many times we have taken credit with great pride in our accomplishments. How often we think we are so good, so spiritual. Anytime we allow pride to enter and flow from us we are dishonoring God’s name. It is only by the grace of God that we can do anything that is good. Let us learn to thank and praise God for all He gives us the ability to do. Let us continually honor His name rather than trying to bring undeserved honor to ours.
