Respect

Today I want to talk about something unique, which everyone needs in life, even relationship break because of that, parents disown their children because of that, friendship end because of that,

There is saying respect is reciprocal, if you respect me I respect you, but that doesn't mean if someone disrespect you should disrespect the person again, because in life we all make mistakes, for example, if your father shouts at you in public, will you shout at him again.

Yes, some will and some will not, remember what the bible tells us about respecting our parent. "Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee" the only commandment with a promise.

But that doesn't mean the only people you should respect are your parents, respect people of the same age with your parents, the blessing is not only coming from your parents, it comes from other people also, especially ageable people.

Let me tell a brief story! There was a time when a child was missing from schools, teachers and school pupils start finding the child, everyone was so worried about the missing child, finally, the news for the missing child reaches the parents.

She had about one teacher by the name of "Mr Tholley" and finally got the address of the man, she went straight of to see Mr Tholley, she determines to say some rough words to him and even determines to fight.

Just as she plains nothing change when she arrived she ask for Mr Tholley by the time, for her to patiently wait for the reply of the person she met, she started saying bad things about the man she was asking for with no fear or respect, but unfortunately, she didn't know the man in person.

She was talking to Mr Tholley directly she never knew she was talking to when someone from a distance call to say hi to Mr Tholley, that is the time she realized she was talking directly to the man she was asking for, just after that few minutes ago they find the missing child.

How the child was missing, she was going from the unknown direction because there was no one to collect her after school, and she was just a little child she can't talk very well, the person who finds the missing child says the only name the child remember is Mr Tholley the teacher.

"Mr Tholley" this man seems to be my father, as a child since the child was found, we too want to retaliate against the woman for her misbehaviours early when she arrived, but my dad stops me and said to us "if a dog bit you and you bit the dog also, you both are dogs...hahaha" and he continues to teach us how to forgive and forget.

The main thing I want us to learn here is that, your reaction when someone this respect you especially in places when you can't resist, let see what the bible say about people who got angry.

“Those who control their anger have great understanding; those with a hasty temper will make mistakes.” ... “My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.”

At last the woman apology, dad forgive her and gave her some important advice for her future, we should learn how to be calm, don't fight for yourself, avoid violence, respect another man view, respect everyone in life no matter the personal situation, no condition is permanent in life.
