31 Days of 5 Minute Free Writes 19: "Honor"

Hebrews 13:4 - Both honourable marriage and chastity should be respected by all of you.
Romans 13:7 (NIV)- Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
Proverbs 3:9 - Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase

Honorable mention.

There's no honor among thieves.

Give honor to whom honor is due.

Honor your word.

Duty, honor, country...

In many cultures, honor is paramount.  It's important to have a good reputation in the community.

What's the balance between maintaining a good reputation and not being overly concerned about what other people think?

I live in a country where what used to be honored is now dishonored and vice versa.  Chivalry, honor, and kindness used to be the norm.  People don't even honor and respect themselves anymore.  Sad.
