Don’t let anyone, I mean NO ONE abuse you or disrespect you! Guard your heart! Imagine holding a great shield over your mind – keeping out the negative darts that sail by you daily. This is a battlefield we are in, but unlike war with weapons we are bombarded daily by words from the media, uncaring people, and sometimes even unknown people weigh in with the disrespect. They simply can’t help but express their opinion about you, your job, your family, your home, your…
Why? How did we get here? Lack of respect! Children don’t learn it from their parents. So, we can’t blame it on the children. Adults don’t practice it, because they were never taught or cared to learn. Simple, small little things that you do daily that makes life richer, more enjoyable – respect. The fiery arrows of hate, distrust, name calling, lying, and those that try to make your life miserable…guard your heart against those people. Don’t let what they think determine who or what you do!
Follow Christ’s example. Don’t blend in to this disrespectful clan. Show respect for yourself and others and stand out.
Proverbs 4:23 – Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.
