Respect Does Matter

Respect matters for us to be a polite, kind and caring person that cares for the needs of others. When we respect each other we feel safe to express ourselves in a group and so much more can be achieved. Respect should be a given as you should not have to be told to respect people in authority. If you are not respectful to others they will most likely not show respect to you either. Disrespect for others will follow you around as people are constantly watching how you interact and treat others.

If you rent a house or stay at a hotel you should leave it in the same or better condition then when you first entered it. If you see a problem that needs to be fixed tell someone as they will be more then happy to fix it for you. Do not let their plumbing drip and cause damage to there establishment. Do not steal towels or anything at a place where you stay. Do not turn off the heat in the winter months. Any damages that you cause make for higher rates down the road for you and the next guy.

Show respect to people in authority such as police officers, first responders,  teachers and the elderly. Remember you may need a police officer to save your life someday. Do not try to speed around an ambulance and remember you may be in an ambulance yourself someday. Respect your teachers as they are trying to teach you to be a knowledgeable and successful person. If you did not earn an A on a test do not expect them to just give you an A. You have to work for or actually earn the A by doing everything that is required of you to get an A grade. Treat the elderly with the upmost respect by being kind, caring and polite. They have contributed much to society and have made the world a better place for you. Never be mean or disrespectful to a person that depends upon you for their care and daily needs. Reality check you will be old yourself someday and is that how you would want to be treated ? Ponder that for awhile.

Being respectful to others helps release stress from their daily lives and it creates a fair work environment. Accept someone else even if you do not exactly  agree with their point of view about the matter a hand. Lend a hand or ear to others when needed.

Be quiet in a Cathedral and reflect upon God while you are seated. Shake hands and talk to your church family before and after the service. Model polite behavior. Regardless of how we perceive other people to be we are all Gods creations and it is Gods will or us to show respect to one another today and always. Feel or show esteem or honor for someone or something.

Scriptures :

Matthew 7:12   Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

Romans 12:10   Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another.
