“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” James 1:17, NKJV.
Respect means to esteem, or consider someone or something of high regard. Everything you have you have been blessed with. We show a high regard to God and our blessings from Him by treating them right. From your home to your spouse, respect your blessings. If your house is junky, clean it. If your car looks a mess, wash it. If your wife has hurt you, forgive her as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you.
Spend some time laughing with your children. If your friends have not heard from you in a while, call them as God places them on your heart. Reverence God by esteeming those that are a blessing in your life. The truth is we don’t have to have these good gifts from God. Yet, you are humbled, knowing where they come from. Thankful for what you have.
This very simple principle applied will yield awesome fruit in your life and others.
Confession: I will not allow circumstances to distract me from respecting, from highly regarding, all that God has done for me. Those in my life, they actually give life to me. They bless me. My wife and children are a blessing to me. My vehicle is a blessing to me. My friends and family are here to be a blessing to me. I will show someone they are appreciated today. I will respect and honor God by respecting my blessings.
