Here are some great insights I got from God’s Word this morning. A common theme emerged of God honoring (and even delighting in) those who honor him (1 Samuel 2:30). Of course, this isn’t because he has to, but out of his grace, he chooses to. Thanks be to God. SDG, Dale
Numbers 14:24 - But because my servant Caleb has a different spirit and follows me wholeheartedly, I will bring him into the land he went to, and his descendants will inherit it.
1 Chronicles 4:9-10 - Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, “I gave birth to him in pain.”  Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.
Psalm 147:11 - the Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.
Proverbs 22:4 - Humility and the fear of the Lord bring wealth and honor and life.
Luke 10:41-42 - ”Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things,  but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
