In our previous lesson, we learned about reasons for honouring God and ways to honour God. We also learned the meaning of honour which is to bestow value upon someone or highly esteem another. The Bible exhorts us to give honour to whom it is due (Romans 13:7). In this lesson, we shall attempt to categorise those who deserve honour and how we can attain honour as well.




The idea of honouring people is biblical and can be showcased in many of our basic relationships. Here are some of them:

  1. Citizen – Authority relationships. We are to honour especially those in authority through obedience and demonstration of respect, irrespective of their age or qualification. This comes from the fact that they represent God’s ultimate authority (Romans 13:1-2).
  2. Laity – Clergy relationships. The Bible speaks of the leadership of the church as being worthy of ‘double honour’ (1 Timothy 5:17).
  3. Employee – Employer relationships. We are equally commanded to honour one another in our employer-employee relationships (Ephesians 6:5-9).
  4. Husband-Wife relationships. In a marriage relationship, the husband is expected to love and show appreciation to his wife while she reciprocates with reverence (Ephesians 5:33).
  5. Children-Parents relationships. The command to honour our parents comes with a promise (Exodus 20:12). To do otherwise is to attract untimely death (Matthew 15:4).
    On the whole, the Bible admonishes us to honour all men (1 Peter 2:17).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Should the wicked/ungodly leaders be honoured?


The Bible teaches that true honour is found in God (Deuteronomy 26:19). Anyone who wishes to attain true honour must have a cordial relationship with God (Psalm 91:14-15); be righteous (Proverbs 21:21); be humble (Proverbs 22:4); wise and intelligent (Proverbs 4:7-8); diligent (Proverbs 22:29); faithful and maintain integrity (Psalm 41:12; Proverbs 20:7), among others.

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Students should discuss whether wealth or riches should be a criterion for honour.

CONCLUSION: If we honour those promoted by God, He will honour us too. Do not look down on anyone.


  1. Mention five categories of people who deserve to be honoured?
  2. How can we attain true honour?


Sunday: 1 Thessalonians 4:4 (KJV) – That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

Monday: Judges 9:9 (KJV) – But the olive tree said unto them, Should I leave my fatness, wherewith by me they honour God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees?

Tuesday: Exodus 20:12 (KJV) – Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

Wednesday: Proverbs 20:3 (KJV) – It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.

Thursday: Proverbs 29:23 (KJV) – A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.

Friday: John 5:23 (KJV) – That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

Saturday: Romans 2:10 (KJV) – But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

ASSIGNMENT: Students should mention ten consequences of dishonouring people (1X10=10 marks).


  1. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    O how I love Thee well,
    I am happy, it makes me glad
    To rejoice at Thy birth.
  2. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    Thy friend friendship suits me well,
    Both young and will sing Thy song,
    We long for Sunday School.
  3. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    Christ was Thy first teacher,
    The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
    Does manifest in thee.
  4. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    This testimony is sure,
    That God, the Father Almighty,
    Poured His blessing on Thee
  5. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    Though the sun be so bright,
    Or if the clouds be black with rain,
    I’ll be in Sunday School.
  6. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day
    I rejoice to see Thee,
    Will thou pass over me today?
    Without my being blest?
