Honor

in honor preferring one another (Romans 12:10).

The word “honor” in Romans 12:10 is the translation of the Greek word τιμή (timē), meaning “value … by analogy esteem.”

The value of anything is what someone is willing to pay for it. Paul tells us that we’ve been bought with a price (I Corinthians 6:20; 7:23); and the word that Paul used for “price” is this same Greek word used in Romans 12:10 for honor (τιμή).

The value of anything is what someone is willing to pay for it. God paid for us with the sacrifice of the “Son of His love” (Colossians 1:13, Concordant). This sets our value at the highest in the universe. Thus, by faith this is to be the extreme value that we place on each other, “in honor preferring one another” (Romans 12:10).
