The psalmist speaks of what they feel is dishonorable:
Guilt over doing an injustice.
Betraying a friend.
Plundering one's enemy without cause.
If the psalmist has done any of those things, God can let their enemy capture them and trample them to the ground. Their honor is already dust in that case: so should their body be as well.
What are some actions that you would consider to be dishonorable?
Have you ever done something that someone has considered dishonorable?
Do people even admire those who are honorable anymore?
Or has what was once considered to be honorable changed?
God, we all have different views of what is honorable. But we want to be honorable in your eyes. Help us to govern our actions and behavior so that we are always honorable to you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
