Reverence for Almighty God
Show proper respect to everyone, love your brother, fear God, honor all people.
1 Peter 2:17
In yesterday’s devotion we introduced the buffalo as a symbol of power, strength, and survival. The Lakota gave honor and praise to God for this magnificent animal. It is respected as a symbol of the divine by the Native Americans and as a “banquet” for the people. The buffalo gave up its life to provide food, shelter, and clothing for the Native Americans.
The buffalo is a symbol of self-sacrifice; it gives until there is nothing left. This behavior was imitated by the people-to be generous and give what you have to others in need, or to honor them, is one of the most highly respected ways of behaving. Honor and Respect are the highest forms of Love. Reverence for God was central in Native American life; recognizing that all life and healing comes from the Great Spirit.
