We like to think that this rule is alive and well and will continue to be, well, for forever. But lately, we see this rule taking a back to seat to some others things that are not quite so positive and constructive.

And, are we showing appreciation, politely speaking to and about one another day in and day out? Because these statements are actually just the definitions of “respect” adapted into questions. Respect is at the root of The Golden Rule. In fact, it’s through respect for ourselves and for one another that we’ll create a world filled with people who know how much and why they matter. So get ready for a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Respect matters. VO from talk by author, speaker, pastor, influencer, Erwin McManus.  http//
