5~Have you ever been respectful to someone who is disrespectful to you?
This is definitely something I have struggled with. I've worked in call-centers, retail and restaurants. All of these are places in which you must bite your tongue. It also helps that I am not easily offended by comments or actions from people. I have better things to be concerned about. But as I am deepening my relationship with Christ, I realize that loving one another is more important than winning a battle or being right.
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
1 Peter 3:8
Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble.
