The Virtue is Respect and the Saboteur is Defiance.
Respect is earned not demanded.
We have a tendency to be defiant about respect. We demand and insist that respect be shown to one another. How did we get to such a point that the ideals of respectfulness are taught so disrespectfully?
Learning respect is very important and we learn it by watching one another. When a person receives the respect of others in a humble way, we are then humbled by them. We want to be like them and have others also be naturally respectful to us. But when we see someone who demands respect, we see people jumping to serve out of fear, not dignity. Then people learn how to put the fear of respect into others.

We live in a time when the word friendship seems to be over used and under utilized. Friendship begins with yourself. Treating yourself with dignity and forgiveness creates a habit that you will naturally extend toward others. This word is a sacred bond between individuals, families and countries. It’s a bond of trust.
The story of the Master Jesus is a story of friendship and betrayal.
His friend sold him for 30 pieces of silver, other friends denied him and abandoned him in the darkest of times.
Jesus was friends with His disciples, he was also a friend to those he healed, fed, comforted and taught. He didn’t promote religion or politics, he promoted love.
