Honor vs. Disrespect

Honor vs. Disrespect

Definition: Respecting those in leadership because of the higher authorities they represent.

I Will…..

* Be attentive to those who lead me

* Show loyalty to my authorities

* Speak only the truth

* Obey cheerfully

* Give place to those who are older or hold positions of prominence

Week One Activities 

(Working on ~ Being attentive to those who lead me)

Teach your family to always stop, look and listen when being spoken to. Children often struggle listening when engaged in other activity, while a leader/parent is attemption to speak.

Week Two Activities

(Working on ~ Showing loyalty to my authorities)

During family time ensure children understand that honoring your parents isn’t just done in front of them. When you aren’t around their friends/peers is often where disrespect abounds. Remind them that though they may not understand all you say/do that you have their best interest at heart.

Week Three Activities 

(Working on ~ Speaking only the truth)

Discuss how truth vs. a lie is honoring. Truth though not always easy shows forth good character, and promotes honor. While a lie only brings folly and distrust by parents and others, as well as disrespect.

Week Four Activities 

(Working on ~ Obeying cheerfully)

A cheerful spirit while doing that which you are asked shows through action that you honor your leader/parent. Actions speak louder than words often times. Share this at your family time.

Week Five Activities

(Working on ~ Giving place to those who are older or hold positions of prominence)

Those in authority over us or the aged are due honor. Whether because of their position or age, it does not matter, as the younger/less experienced we owe this to them. Take time to see that your children remember this, we all can learn much from those who have gone on before us.

    I love the difference in the way the words make me feel. Honor opens my heart and takes my guard down.

    Disrespect puts me on the defensive and my guard goes up. Who wants to go through life feeling like that?

    I absolutely love your list of weekly activities. After week 5, start over again and learn many more new lessons.

    I really like the comment you make for Week 2 – about how when children are with their friends they can become very disrespectful – I think it’s because there’s a prevailing idea that if mum and dad can’t hear it, it’s not hurting anyone. But disrespect is sometimes more about attitude than action.

    I was thinking that these thoughts can apply to our relationship with our husbands, and also our relationships with our children. It’s VERY easy to fall into the trap of venting with our friends. I think that sometimes we *need* to vent – an issue isn’t serious and just getting it off our chest helps enormously. But quickly venting can easily become a litany of all the annoying things our husband/kids do – spurred on by shared stories. As mothers and wives we need to remember that being around our friends offers some of the same temptations it does our kids.

    Thanks for the great ideas for family devotion time!

      Oh yes, that is so very true! It is very easy to do the same things we expect our children not to do. The tongue can be a wicked thing. Thanks for bringing that to light, and for stoppin by! Blessings!
