The 40 Day, 40 Night Challenge - Day 22

Honor.

Today’s Reading:

Hebrews 13:18 

Romans 12:9-13 

John 12:26 

Question:

What does it mean to have a desire to live honorably? Honor means to be a man or woman who is honest, fair and with integrity in beliefs or actions. But how do we develop the desire to be a person of honor?

I am a man that didn't live with honor for most of my life. I had made too many mistakes and was hiding too many secrets. When my life finally flamed out and I lost everything, the ONLY thing I wanted back was my honor. My integrity. I wanted to be able to look a man in the eye and tell him "this is true" and have him believe me.

I probably shouldn't say this, as my enemies will try to use it against me, but the hardest thing I ever deal with is when someone says, I only do this for money or shock value or ratings. Or if someone who represents me treats others dishonorably, I feel it reflects on me and hurts my hard earned integrity. Imagine how The Lord feels when I don't live up to his standards. When I claim to be a Christian. How do I reflect on Him?

Forgive me Lord.

I made a pact with The Lord. If he removed my sin, I would serve Him and try to live a life with honor.

Application:

Today, take some time to ask yourself - why do you want to live honorably? Take this question and discuss it with your family and friends. Decide together what it is that inspires or creates your desire to live honorably.

What are the things in your life that might skirt dishonor? How does dishonor not only effect you but your family?

MLK Pledge - #10:

Discipline yourself to follow the spirit of the movement.

Quotes:

“The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.” - Socrates

“We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.” - C.S. Lewis

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
