PRAYING FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CHURCH AND NATION
Express dignified behavior towards others around you (1Ti 5:1,2). #DignfiedBehavior #RespectForOthers https://bible.com/bible/116/1ti.5.1-2.NLT
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
Paul makes an important point here about pastors relating to the men and women around him. It is however, good counsel to anyone, especially to leaders.
1) Be respectful of older men, just as you would your own father. Listen to their counsel. Let your conversation, even when disagreeing, be polite.
2) Talk to younger men like a brother – not condescending, firm but by friendly persuasion; like a mentor.
3) Give older women the same respect you would your own mother. Be gracious and kind.
4) Treat younger women with all decorum just as you would your own sister. Be respectful in all purity.
Lord, may all my dealings with those around me be dignified and polite, honoring them and God as well.
