Our current generation is failing to teach the next generation respect. Respect for authority, respect for others, respect for God, respect for Church or even respect for themselves. What ever happened to ‘Sunday go-to-meetin’ clothes’? When we were little, if we ever called an adult by their first name, we wouldn’t be able to sit down for a week. We never would’ve argued or yelled at a police man or our boss or even the man at the bank that messed up on our deposit. Back in the ‘old west’ days, even the bad guys never spit or cursed in front of women & children …and whoa be to anyone that said anything bad about their mother.
Somewhere along the way, we’ve lost that since of respect for ourselves, others and especially our God. We need to stop, re-evaluate our lives and start showing a little bit of respect to those we meet and especially to our God!
