“Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners.”Respect is key. There will be disagreements on ideas but there should be respect on the person. This is maturity and this is professionalism.” – Laurence Sterne
You will be hit when you stand for something. I learned that from my father who walks in true honor. He never fights back in a battle he knows will be a lose-lose situation. He sticks to his integrity and remain respectful. When he speaks there is no double meaning. He means what he says. They say talk is cheap. Totally agree.
In life, people might go against your principle but always remember know when to fight back and when not to fight back. True winners know when to quit fighting. Never compromise what we were taught in Scripture.
Luke 6:29New International Version (NIV)
29 If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them.
Haters abound today. Love your haters but take your stand on what is biblically right. Pray for them even when it hurts. It is never about us. It is never about them. It’s all about Christ.
