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?
