Let’s talk a little about spiritual discipline …
Using someone else’s writing without giving credit to the author is abusive, poor manners and a showing of disrespect to the author. In the world it is called plagiarism (theft of intellectual property).
In God’s Kingdom it is called dishonour, which is even worse than stealing!
It simply means that you dishonour God’s servants!
Make no mistake that God cares about these things and that He will measure you by the standards you measure others.
We live in a society where disrespect and dishonour for God and His work through His servants are at the order of the day.
People have the illusion that you can do as you please when it comes to those whom God has called, Anointed and sent.
Be assured that the level of your respect and honour shown to those whom He has called will equal your level of honour for Him!
You cannot honour God and dishonour those whom He has called and Anointed to represent Him in the earth, just as you cannot honour Him as your Father in Heaven, if you dishonour your own father on earth.
What we do on earth as far as His will is concerned will greatly impact and effect our walk in Him and with Him.
Respect, honour and submission are direct results and fruits of being Spirit-filled.
