“…A “little respect” will go a long way; it’s like frosting on a cake….”


Always treat people with RESPECT…. Galatians 5:20-22 tells us: Idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.  These are not just applicable on Sunday, or at home ….they apply in every single thing we do, rather at work, at home, or play.  If we focus on love, joy and peace, and treat each other with respect…. All the Idolatry issues will cease to exist.  As previously written about (4/16/14), the use of SELF-CONTROL is the controlling issue in all of this.  A “little respect” will go a long way; it’s like frosting on a cake.  Try it at HOME, at WORK, at PLAY, and our SPIRITUAL lives.  For most of us, our parents taught us to be RESPECTFUL at an early age…. But somewhere, in the process, we lost our bearings, but, we can regain our perspective… by the Grace of GodMatthew 5:43-45 – You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.  But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.  1 Peter 3:15  But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.  …Blessings…cjlb…4/17/14
