MY LIVING WATER DAILY DEVOTIONAL
WEDNESDAY AUGUST 10, 2022
MAIN TEXT: Matthew 7:12 – So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
1 Thessalonians 5:12
“Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to appreciate those who diligently work among you [recognize, acknowledge, and respect your leaders], who are in charge over you in the Lord and who give you instruction,”
Respect and honor should be shown to everyone, according to the Bible. 1 Peter 2:17 – “Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.” You should respect everyone, whether they show you respect or not. It’s not always easy but it is the Christian life.
Christians should be a people of order and discipline, of righteousness and justice. We are to be examples of love and peace so that others may be won to Christ and be saved for eternity. Respect is a character trait that can open the door to soul winning if properly utilized.
It is said that “you don’t look down on people except you are helping them up”, we are to respect the rich and the poor, we should not be ignorant of Satan’s device – to stain your testimony in Christ with arrogance. Be humble and God will lift you up.
RESPECTING PEOPLE CAN GIVE YOU THAT FAVOR
PRAYER: Lord Jesus Christ, teach my heart to honor and respect as I ought to. Holy Spirit give me a humble heart. Amen
