Yesterday morning my Mother-in-law came into my home library where I was reading my Bible and started proclaiming blessings upon blessings upon me. Initially I was like "okay. Kilode?". But I went on to echo AMEN. After the prayers she said in a shaky voice, " Thank you for always showing me honour and most especially to your husband. You never take any decision even in his absence without consulting him". She went on and on.
Emmanuel Uneze wrote me a letter years back after attending my first major event in 2013. The event (TEENSPIRED) had lots of high profile people come to speak. Dr. Cosmos Maduka of Coscharis, Bovi, Praiz of MTN PF, Lolo 1 of Wazobia, J'odie, Ayo of PF, Emeka Ike, etc. That day I didn't give special preference to my special guests, I allowed my protocol team to handle them. But I went and personally greeted almost all the teens/young adults that attended. Emmanuel said that gesture changed his life forever. Seeing someone like me hug and warmly welcome him and not give him back seat because he wasn't flashily dressed, because he was coming from Ajegunle, etc. (Though I found that amusing).
WHY DO WE NEED TO SHOW HONOUR
1. See, it's easy to show honour to high profile people but it counts more when you honour people who can't pay you back. I've seen situations turn and those that used to look up to you became your helper.
2. I've realized that showing honour attracts favour to you. Chioma Joy Ezechukwu recommended me to a platform I never knew, just because she felt honoured at my event in Aba Abia State in 2015. I didn't even know her until the blogger contacted me telling me how someone mentioned me on their platform.
3. It has a chain reaction effects. I've honoured some of my teens by listening to them and directing them to their path in life and today they are blessings to their families, and their generation. Eg Karimot Isiaka e-book author Gabriel Jimoh working with Goggle
Winifred Edoze fashion designer Ruth Okoli public speaker Barnabas Praise event planner and Unilag first class material Ebube Ezeanyinka script writer extraordinaire Chike Onyia won full scholarship from Emerald University, US and so many of them out their doing great stuff in their youth.
4. Don't miss an opportunity to honour others because you yourself will never lack honour. The generous receives generously too. Freely compliment others. Stop finding faults only. What you sow, you reap.
5. What you can't give freely, you can't get. When you honour people in authority God will make you attain same height or even more.
6. Giving honour attracts blessings from God and men. My Mum in-law declared that my daughters in-law will so bless and be great to me. Its profound.
Note: I'm not trying to blow my trumpet here, kindly concentrate on the message.
Joel Osteen rightly said, "If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day go fishing (shopping- women). If you want happiness for a month get married. If you want happiness for a year win a lottery. But if you want happiness for a lifetime, be good to people".
