The Tall of Respect

Respect has diminished to such a degree in our society, and indeed in our homes, that we now need to relearn respect. Our respect gauge for God mirrors the respect we have for our family members. What image do you reflect?

Ooze with kindness and build others on the steps of your private influence. Start with your home and master the art of respect through your dialogue and demeanor.

What is dialogue? Dialogue is a verbal exchange between two or more persons. Dialogue has an impact and transforms our relationships.

What is demeanor? Your demeanor is your character, conduct, and countenance.

Do not expect fake respect from others through a discourteous spirit or curt countenance. Say what you mean without being mean. If someone does not respect you, the heart of the issue is an issue with his or her heart.

Loss of respect is loss of heart. 

Live your life respecting those undeserving. Allow the Holy Spirit to change your own heart and your own level of respect for God and His Word. This single, yet superior act 
will alone transform your world and indeed the lives under your influence. Respect comes full circle.

More often than not, what I desire the most is what I transpose the least. Rather, correction comes to the critique before a circle of correction is complete. We must judge ourselves before we can be fit judges of others.

“And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” Matthew 7:3

Our home cultivates authenticity or uncovers the impostor. Remember, 

"Kindness is the oil that takes the friction out of life."

Are you tall in respect?
