I have decided to try and do a blog post daily for today I chose respect, honor and courtesy
Respect is it earned or given? Some believe it is freely given, while others believe it is earned. Craig Groeschel of life church says “Remember respect is earned, but honor is given”. He believes if you treat someone with honor maybe they will start behaving honorably.
If you are courteous to everyone then you show regard for them in manners and behavior. It is mostly about what you do, how you treat them. For example you do not argue with them in public.
Honor is how you think about someone.It is more evolved than just treating them with courtesy How you treat them is how you feel about them. You are more likely to be obedient to someone you honor rather than someone you are just courteous to.
So do you believe that respect and courtesy is given freely and it is a fact that honor is earned. People usually mix up Honor and respect I think. However I was raised by an old country southern hick and I was taught give me something to Respect, and Honor but be courteous to everyone. Treat people how you wish to be treated. For example if you are in a relationship and the only people that know, are the people that you are around, and it is hidden from the public, If your partner spends 50% of their time online and you are hidden from that aspect, then he/she is not honoring nor respecting you, So sometimes in life you demand the respect and honor you deserve and if you do not get it, you can either walk off or stay. Me I will put up with it for a while then when I have had enough I am done.
