Honor Prophets

The people of Jesus’ hometown rejected Him, and so He said, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house” (Mark 6:4).
There are exceptions to that, but He stated the rule. Relatives of Jesus accepted Him, including His parents, or at least His mother, and later some of His siblings. However, outsiders typically give more honor to a preacher.
While no true prophets in the sense of biblical prophets exist today, preachers fulfill a similar roll. Therefore, be sure to honor them as you would a prophet.
