We all use the word respect quite often. But what does it mean? It means esteem for the worth or excellence of a person.
First of all we should respect ourselves. Each one of us is created in God’s image. Each one of us is unique—a very special creation of God. Therefore each one of us should value ourselves highly.
Secondly we should respect our elders. It includes our parents, elders, and teachers. In doing so we are respecting not only their age but their wisdom and the good they have done to society.
Thirdly we should respect the law, our government, our nation, our national anthem and our national flag. We should always remember with thanks all those people who sacrificed so much for our nation’s freedom.
Finally let it be noted that love and respect go hand in hand.The Bible says that a husband should love and respect his wife and the wife in turn must respect her husband.
So let us respect all people who come our way–even those who hold a different opinion than ours!

Husbands, in the same way be considerate as your live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers” — St. Peter (1 Peter 3:7 Bible).
