I honor my identity as a child of God.

I honor people in my life who are important to me and show them respect. But do I always honor and respect myself? By honoring myself, I am also honoring God, for I am God's beloved child.

How do I honor myself? I listen to and follow the still small voice within that guides my thoughts, words and actions. I give thanks for my body and make a commitment to eat right and exercise each day. I recognize my unique talents and abilities, knowing they are God-given and that I am forever capable of learning and doing more.

I take time for spiritual study and reflection, for it is an important part of my life and a reflection of who I am as a beloved and honored child of God.

As God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.--Colossians 3:12
