Remember Respectfully



Respect seems to have gone missing from our culture. Why is that, do you think?


  • Too much self-esteem, not enough selfless service
  • Lack of manners
  • Lack of morals

Folks think that unless you agree 100% with other people’s politics and lifestyle, you can’t respect them. Differ with someone on a single point or discover that the person has a single failing—Boom! Respect is gone.

Newsflash! No one is perfect.

Romans 3:23 (NLT)
We all fall short of God’s glorious standard.

It’s Memorial Day – don’t analyze, don’t judge. Just remember. And respect.

  1. Well-done, Shirlee.

    I;’d add another reason for the decline of respect – a sense of entitlement leading to envy. “HE is respected for what he did…so why am I not respected for what I…uh, might do someday?”

      Yes, Andrew, there are some who think that intentions are as good as deeds.
