In the book of Genesis, Chapter 1:26, it is written: Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
We are marvelously and magnificently made. With such a distinction, it is imperative that we honor God and take care of ourselves - mind, soul, body, and spirit. It is also for that reason and various others, that we should respect ourselves! If we don’t, who will? Respect carries you farther than the longest stream. Respect is priceless. Respecting yourself places you on an invisible throne that gives you the greatest presence of all. It is worth its weight in gold. Respect God. Respect yourself. Respect others! With that admonition, I say Happy Sunday and God bless!
