SUNDAY SCHOOL HYMN
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.

Lord’s day,
This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessing on Thee

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?

1. WHO DESERVES HONOUR?
2. HOW CAN WE ATTAIN TRUE HONOUR?
1. WHO DESERVES HONOUR?
A. The idea of honouring people is biblical and can be showcased in many of our basic relationships. Here are some of them:
i. Citizen-Authority relationships: We are to honour 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 (Rom.13:1-2).
ii. Laity-Clergy relationships: The Bible speaks of the leadership of the church as deserving ‘double honour’ (1Tim.5:17).
iii. Employee-Employer relationships: We are equally commanded to honour one another in our employer-employee relationships (Eph.6:5-9).
iv. Husband-Wife relationships: In a marriage relationship, the husband is expected to love and show appreciation to his wife while she reciprocates with reverence (Eph.5:33).
v. Children-Parents relationships: The command to honour our parents comes with a promise (Ex.20:12). To do otherwise is to attract untimely death (Matt.15:4).
B. On the whole, the Bible admonishes us to honour all men (1 Pet.2:17).

The Bible teaches that true honour is found in God (Deut.26:19). Anyone who wishes to attain true honour must, first of all, have a cordial relationship with God (Ps.91:14-15).
