What does reverence mean, and how can we benefit from it depending on who or what we feel reverent about? We desperately need reverence or faith in our life, just as we need hope. Before we go any further, let us take a look at the definition of reverence in our Webster Dictionary and our Daily Wisdom Words Definition.
Webster Definition for Reverence: 1. Deep respect for someone or something . 2. to regard or treat someone with great respect. There are two synonyms for reverence are: awe, revere, venerate
Daily Wisdom Words Definition of reverence: 1. Having faith or belief in someone or something. Believing in something with total respect.
Reverence is similar to faith, because it requires belief in something you cannot use your senses for. You cannot hear reverence, taste reverence or smell it, so it is not defined as easily. Reverence in a “feeling” of profound respect for someone, almost an idolization, and this type of respect and admiration is only found in something that is meaningful to us. I use the word reverence in association with the feelings I have for God. I am in awe of him. I also have feelings not quite as intense as faith or reverence, still intense and based on the power behind my belief. These types of deeply intense feelings are reserved for loved ones such as our parents, or my children.
Sad, children when they are small, seem to idolize their parents, and have reverence for them. As they get older, they begin to see the flaws in their parents and realize they are not super powers as they once thought.
I think there is much in this world to be grateful for, and I feel reverence does include how we feel about the person or angel or God we look up to. In fact, in the Webster Definition of the word, how we feel about the person also defines reverence.
When one feels reverence towards another, it is not uncommon for them to take a bow, and adore who they feel it for. This is why, for me, I feel this towards God.
Some individuals feel deep reverence for their president. I will not “comment” on this, currently. Daily Wisdom Words is designed to be objective, but there are many times, you will see my opinion of the wisdom word.
