The people we love, our acquaintances, people who have hurt us all may not deserve our respect but we are called to give respect. But our Christian family we’re called to love. Not just respect but have a warm heart toward, do what we need to help them., and listen carefully to what they say because we all talk on levels that take time and patience to understand and give them love. God is to be revered, honored, worshipped. Our President may or may not be doing foolish things but because he’s chosen by God he should get respect from us. That’s difficult. It takes time and a whole rethinking in our minds.
Respect everyone, and love your Christian brothers and sisters. Fear God, and respect the king. – 1 Peter 2:17 (NLT)
