We consider one more blessing that comes from walking with the Lord: honor. Our passage shows us this by way of negative example and by way of positive statement in the case of Eli.
We consider three things:
Do you want honor for yourself from the world? You might get it, but you won’t be able to keep it. If you seek the glory of the world, the Lord may remove from you what you have, as He did Eli. If you seek honor from God by honoring Him, He will honor you in this life and allow you to keep that honor forever.
