Celebrating An Amazing Woman Worthy of Double Honor
The elders who perform their leadership duties well are to be considered worthy of double honor (financial support), especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching [the word of God concerning eternal salvation through Christ].
– 1 Timothy 5:17 (AMP)
“We don’t honor just to get a reward; we honor because it is the heart of God, and it is our delight.”

Living a life of honor is pivotal to cultivating thriving relationships – with God and with others.
Although honor seems to be going extinct in our day and age, we are still deeply moved by displays of it. That’s why acts of honor should not just be admired and applauded – they must become a way of life
The word honor simply means ‘a valuing’. Another definition of honor is appreciation, esteem, favorable regard, and respect. Honor can be displayed in action, word, and even thought. But all true honor originates from the heart.
Someone said; “True honor is an outflow from a heart that fears God.”
To honor someone is to genuinely love them because it takes unconditional love to walk in true honor. Honoring someone is bestowing dignity upon them, which communicates their value.
Paul instructed; ‘Let love be without hypocrisy, Abhor what is evil, cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another’
First of all, Paul states true love has no hypocrisy. A definition of hypocrisy is ‘the concealment of one’s real character or motives’.
This would be characterized by one who acts as though they honor by their outward actions and words, but within they criticize, envy, or even despise you. Or in your absence, they cut down, defame or slander you.
To extend true honor, it must be done without hypocrisy. It can never be done in pretense. It’ll only lead to deception, and there’s definitely no reward for the counterfeit.
On this 25th day of May, let’s rise to honor and acknowledge an amazing woman of faith that is indeed worthy of double Honor, one in whom there is no guile or deceit.
We make bold to say the world will be a far better place if we have more women like Pastor Funmi Johnson.

Go ahead today and appreciate her with kind words, and gifts of love. You can also reach her on social media (@thefunmijohnson), and let her know she is indeed an honorable leader.
Remember to always appreciate and honor the men and women God has connected you with in your life.
Above all, don’t pay lip service to the kingdom of God, your Father in Heaven is to be honored, adored, and worshipped with all your heart, so Honor God with your life
LET US PRAY:
In Jesus’ Name, I pray for Mrs. Funmi Johnson.
I ask that every burden is lifted from her shoulders.
I pray that every yoke be destroyed from her neck.
I pray her into purpose, I pray her into joy, I pray her into prosperity and increase.
May the Lord answer her when she calls;
May the name of the God of Jacob protect her and all that belongs to her.
God will send her help from the sanctuary and grant her support from Zion. Her sacrifices and burnt offerings will be acceptable to God.
God will give her the desires of her heart and make all her plans succeed.
May we shout for joy over her victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God.
May the Lord grant all our requests in Jesus’ Name.
