Give each other more honor than you give yourself – Romans 12:10
Romans 12:10 Love each other in a way that makes you feel close like brothers and sisters. And give each other more honor than you give yourself.
I've been thinking about how harsh we can be with people around us whether it’s folks who work with us, neighbors, workers at the stores we go to, and especially with people who are closest to us.
It’s like we forget that we are forgiven and that God’s grace doesn’t discriminate based on the level of sin we’ve committed.
Sin is going to catch up with us … believe it. No one is immune.
Our “self-honor” doesn't allow us to see what deep burdens or hang ups others deal with…
Next time we start to criticize or show how witty we can be, we should consider honoring the other person more than ourselves. It just may change the words from our mouths and the thoughts of our hearts.
I’m making an effort to be kinder. I am.
