Where Is Respect Nowadays?
Where is the "po" and "opo" nowadays? The silence when older people come in? The silence when teachers speak? The apology when you have done wrong? A listening attitude when you are being told that what you have done was wrong? A listening attitude when wise and older people speak? Where is the respect when other people speak and give their ideas? Where is the respect when you are being asked to listen and take heed?
Romans 13:7 NIV says, "Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor." (emphasis mine).
"Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government."-I Peter 2:17 NIV
We may be in a fast-paced environment or a booming generation but "respect" should not be forgotten.
