Romans 13:7 - Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
Respect. It can be hard to come by. It’s something that has to be earned. This applies readily to our relationships with others. However, how do you earn respect for yourself? Many times we think and treat ourselves like as if we are less of a person because of where our life is at. What we have to remember is that if we don’t respect ourselves how can we expect anyone else to? Do you have trouble respecting yourself? I’d love to hear from you.
