One more thought about RESPECT

17 Jun

RESPECT.  It must be earned.

People will respect your title or position, only for a while.  It might buy a little time until you prove yourself deserving of their respect.

I think that is part of where Paul was headed in Ephesians 5 & 6 when he wrote about Fathers, Mothers, and Children.  Specifically, FATHERS, you MUST live a life that is respectable.  Do you want your wife to really respect you?  To FOLLOW your lead?  Make the lead RESPECTABLE.  Do you want your children to HONOR you??  Live a life worthy of their admiration and honor.

And, again:  NO ONE IS PERFECT.  You won’t be, either.  But be enough of a man to realize when you’ve made a mistake and MAKE IT RIGHT.
