    ”Be Respectful”

    Pride is dangerous to the Body of Christ
    It is arrogance; a condescending attitude
    It is an insidious cancer upon the heart
    It is a tone of anger, hostile and rude

    At its core, there is an element of fear
    An insatiable need to always be right
    Like a stubborn and recalcitrant child
    Refusing correction; ready for a fight

    Humility is something quite beautiful
    Like a flower, it blossoms and grows
    Nurtured by the Spirit and The Word
    A sweet fragrance to the One it knows

    God’s own must humble themselves
    None of them is better than another
    All selfish interests must be put aside
    They must be respectful of each other

    Proverbs 11:2 (NASB)
    When pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom.
    Romans 12:16 (NASB)
    Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation.
