1 Timothy 3:4 (NIV)
He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him, and he must do so in a manner worthy of full respect.
The Bible contains so much practical advice for us. Heeding the advice found in the Scriptures can help us live our lives well – in relationship to others. An important covenant between people, within the family, in the church, and as a member of society, in general, is respect – mutual respect for one another. May we show those around us the respect that is due them as one of God’s children. (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
