When we honor God, he answers back
The main reason for us to honor God should be because he is worthy to be honored and praised, he is the almighty creator.
But what's even better, when we start to thank God, praise and honor him and keep his commands, he answers us back!





God is the best of all
It says in the Bible that God created man to glorify him. God wanted an authentic audience, someone who really can experience, see, feel, judge and think something, people who can and want to show appreciation and give glory to him, praise him. Our whole society is characterized by competitions, rallies about who is the fastest driver, artists competing in singing and dancing competitions as to who is the best. Sport is mostly about contestants World Cup, ice hockey Olympic games etc. -who is the best in the world? And the prizes are awarded to the winners. All this gives meaning to the participants and the audience and creates excitement and great entertainment, it creates good products that we may enjoy.
Then of course it's natural that we also focus on God, the Almighty Creator who is the absolute best person in the universe, he who has created the universe, He who is the source of all life and natural beauty. He who has given us senses to experience the world with. Take a look at the wonders of the world.

God wanted love and a meaningful relationship, someone who can chose to love and serve him by free will, or choose to reject him. Therefore, he created humans. Let us praise God! Honor him! Love God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.

The ten commandments
If you love me you will keep my commandments Jesus said. This is what God wants us to do. This is where we humans fail. But we should anyway try.
At the end of our lives God will know for sure if we really tried to follow him or if we just really didn't cared about him at all. The good news is that God forgives us if we honestly turn to him and repent of our sins and if we confess Jesus as our lord and savior.
