Honour does not mean you have to agree with what they believe, but rather you value who they are above what they believe. Most importantly, we are to honour God

 In addition, we are to honour our father and mother, the elderly, rulers , church leaders  and others who serve Christ faithfully

Also, the Sabbath day and marriage.

The Bible commands Christians to “honour everyone” 

Give preference to honour means to esteem and treat another with respect because of who they are or what they have done. 

Honour has the sense of value, price, or quality. That which is valued and esteemed is “honoured.” 

Here are 24 Bible verses on Division and Honour

1 Corinthians 1:10–17 NLT

10 I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters,[a] by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose. 11 For some members of Chloe’s household have told me about your quarrels, my dear brothers and sisters. 12 Some of you are saying, “I am a follower of Paul.” Others are saying, “I follow Apollos,” or “I follow Peter,[b]” or “I follow only Christ.” 13 Has Christ been divided into factions? Was I, Paul, crucified for you? Were any of you baptized in the name of Paul? Of course not! 14 I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15 for now no one can say they were baptized in my name. 16 (Oh yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas, but I don’t remember baptizing anyone else.) 17 For Christ didn’t send me to baptize, but to preach the Good News—and not with clever speech, for fear that the cross of Christ would lose its power.

Luke 11:17 NLT

He knew their thoughts, so he said, “Any kingdom divided by civil war is doomed. A family splintered by feuding will fall apart.

But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.

‘Father will be divided against son
    and son against father;
mother against daughter
    and daughter against mother;
and mother-in-law against daughter-in-law
    and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.
