"You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created." (Revelation 4:11 NRSV)
Comedian Bob Hope was accepting a plaque at an honorary dinner. He listened as his many contributions to humanity were lauded. When it was his turn to speak, he said that he had stopped letting such honors go to his head. "I just got a call from a fellow who said I'd been named Man of the Year by his organization," Hope said, "because I was America's outstanding citizen, greatest humanitarian, and so forth. It was going to be the biggest dinner, biggest civil reception ever. I told him I was sorry, but I was going to be tied up that night. There was a short pause. Then the caller said, by any chance would you have Red Skelton's phone number?'"

I hope we will caught up in things that will honor God! God doesn't want our awards. God wants our unending commitment to him.

Dear God, may I live my life today in such a way that you will be honored. Amen.
