Speaking the Truth in Love
All around us we see many people of various ages not respecting their parents, teachers, those in authority, the government and its laws, and our leaders. Let us see what God's Word says about these things.
3. Others (Philippians 2:1-4)
4. Brethren (Ephesians 5:18-21)
Young women respect older women, Young men respect older men. Remember, even when we get older, like me and David, we must honor, respect, and submit to those older and wiser than us (example of Timothy to Paul - Timothy probably between 35-40 years old). We need to be "willing to yield" as James 3:17 shows.
Are you respecting God tonight? Have you submitted completely to Him? One day you will answer to Him (Romans 14:10, 2 Corinthians 5:10, Hebrews 10:26-31). Study the scriptures and obey them. Then you will have comfort and rest (Matt. 11:28-30) and a home in Heaven (John 14:1-3)!
