Day 20: R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Don’t tell me you’re not singing that song in your head right now.  Or out loud.

‘It does not dishonour others’

That’s basically what verse 5 of this chapter of love says.  Love means honouring those around us, showing them respect.

Honour – a showing of usually merited respect (Merriam-Webster)

Respect –  a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc., and should be treated in an appropriate way (M-W)

Real love is treating someone like they’re important.  Because they are.

Honouring them is saying ‘you are worth something because you are important, and you mean a lot to me’.  It doesn’t cost us anything, and can mean the whole world.

What can you do today to show someone they’re important to you?
