The Honourable Man Affirmation.

But a ·good leader plans to do good [honorable/noble man plans honorable/noble things]and those ·good [honorable; noble] things make him ·a good leader [or stand firm].

— Isaiah 32:8 [EXB]

The honourable man affirmation contains a series of statements and bible verses for the ultimate man, who does not intimidate or look down on others because of his masculinity. A man who is bold, humble, responsible and worthy of respect; a man who trusts in the Lord and obeys Him alone. The honourable man is a leader who fears nothing but the Lord. If you seek to be this man; then this one’s just for you.
