Respect everyone, and love your Christian brothers and sisters. Fear God and respect the king. I Pet. 2:17

Some are respected because of the positions they hold. Some earn respect because of the way they live their lives. Flawed and fallen as we all are, all people are due respect as human beings who are created in God’s own image and loved and valued by Him.

Lord help me to respect all others and to live in such a way that any positional or inherent respect due me is replaced with earned respect.
