What is the Honor Cycle?
My next book, The Honor Cycle, will release later this summer. It’s a project I started years ago after God asked me to do something I thought was a bit strange. In prayer one morning, I sensed Him ask me to honor my father and go to college. It didn’t make any sense to me, because I knew I was called to full-time ministry. Bible School seemed the logical choice. The next fifteen years, however, would reveal that God was using my parents’ counsel to set me up for His best plan for my life.
Over the last decade, every aspect of my life has been profoundly impacted by the practice of honor. I realized that honor had actually propped open the door for me to receive something I desperately needed from my parents and mentors. It’s something I call blessing. The Honor Cycle is the flow of honor and blessing between generations. When properly cultivated, the Honor Cycle empowers families and societies to learn from their successes and failures, solve problems together and build a better future for generations to come.
