A Man of Honor

Sep 26th 2012 new

I read a profile recently where the gentleman listed this about himself stating that he is a man of honor. I was very impressed and wanted to know more. What types of qualities would a man of honor possess? How would you describe him and how he lives? Thank you ahead of time for the discussion we will have!

Honor is a word we do not hear a lot these days. Do certain actions, qualities or behaviors and beliefs come to mind?

I have been teaching and I notice that in the public schools there is a serious attempt to teach values and morals as well as an attempt to help children promise to graduate from high school by having them make this pledge daily along with pledging to reach for other positive goals. They review the rules of good behavior each day as well. I am so impressed with this.

What do you think of this?


In an adult what constitutes honor?

I believe the single primary quality is integrity.

I would add truthfulness to the list.

I think of the movie "Men of Honor" and I think of Marine Corps recruit training. I think of striving to be the person that God sets forth for us to be. Ray is right, integrity is at the top of the list. Forthright comes to mind, too. I know people who think that they are being honest withholding pertinent information because the right question was not asked. That is extremely dishonorable to me.

Honorable people espouse high ideals and are willing to stand for them. Christian martyrs were all honorable. Another common Marine Corps phrase, "Death before dishonor" comes to mind. Honorable people are willing to die for their beliefs, die in the protection of others. heart

I agree with Ray that integrity is critical. I also believe that accountability, and accepting responsibility for one's actions are also key.

A man of honor to me is someone who has integrity, morals, and values he lives by in his daily life. Someone who is honest, truthful, respectful to others and is a man of his word. wave fluffy

An honorable person is selfless. One has his or her focus centered outside of themselves. Honorable people are disciplined to not cave to the whims of society, peer pressure, or passing fancies. There is a sense of dedication. They serve others. They have humility. They are principled and have high standards for themselves.

Thank you. Do you have any further elaboration in describing your meaning of integrity?

Thank you Anne Marie. I like your mention of the person who thinks they are being honest while withholding the pertinent information because the person did not ask the right questions. This is a very good point.
