Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect
for others guides our manners.
- Laurence Sterne

Respect and Value
Updated: 01/08/2021

Do we not all want to be respected and valued? What good are we to others if we do not help sustain and enhance their lives? We all want to be affirmed, yet this simple act is left undone so much of the time in a cold, frenzied and troubled world. How can we consider ourselves to be loving and of goodwill, if we do not look for opportunities to acknowledge, respect, value, and affirm qualities in other potential children of God?

So, what are the essentials in showing respect and acknowledging value, being respected and valued?

Become Aware

You can't begin to show proper respect if you are unaware of what is worthy of the respect, so the first part of respecting some quality is to be aware or acknowledge that aspect, dimension or capability. You can't respect a dimension in a person if you are unaware of it.

Value and Acknowledge

The second part of respecting something or someone means to see that aspect, dimension or capability as having value. You can't respect a dimension in a person if it has no value. And they can't relate to you as a sensitive, caring person if you do not acknowledge their qualities.

Honor and Affirm

The third part is the most important--where there is life-enhancing meaning presented to another person--is to in some way honor the individual by an affirming remark, sentiment or deed.

These simple steps go a long way to enhance other lives, including your own. You may have significant virtuous, a sterling character, pristine values, and make a significant contribution or a great sacrifice, but if you don't practice the simple actions above, you will not be considered to be a warm, loving person.
