“Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” … SCIENTIFIC “and” SPIRITUAL

Created first by logic and practicality, and enriched by an altruistic ideology, Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE, I am also increasingly discovering with my Biblical studies how often respect is mentioned in The BIBLE … and how much respect is often described as a precursor to love, which interestingly enough is also noted with my collection of poems, “Respect … The Way Back into Love.”

Check out the following I copied and shared from my daily email from Joel Osteen because of his words about the Biblical need for “respect” and the benefits we reap … as husbands, wives, and in general.

“Unhindered Prayers”

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“…Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.”
(1 Peter 3:7, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Did you know that the way you treat people has an impact on the effectiveness of your prayers? The Bible says that the prayer of the righteous person is powerful. But if we aren’t treating others with honor, kindness and respect, then we aren’t allowing His righteousness to operate in us. When we don’t treat others the way we should, it closes the door to God’s power and hinders our prayers.

This is especially true in a marriage relationship. Marriage isn’t just an agreement between two people to live life together. Marriage is a God-ordained institution that helps us understand love and unity. When two people are married, they become one physically, spiritually and emotionally. This particular passage is directed toward husbands, but it applies to all believers as well. We should all treat others “with understanding,” which means considering the needs of others above our own. We should always aim to treat others with kindness, dignity, and respect and quickly choose forgiveness. The Bible says that the way we treat others is the way we treat God. So choose love and treat others with respect so that your prayers will not be hindered!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, teach me to live in Your ways. Help me to always treat others with love and respect, which shows that I honor You. Show me how to be a blessing to others so that my prayers will be effective in Jesus’ name. Amen.
