Respecting Others and Treating Them With Dignity

“Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” – Romans 12:10 NIV

Treating others with dignity and respect entails treating others as worthy. Sometimes Christians may be perceived as judgmental or hypocritical by people with different beliefs. This is one reason it is important to honor others and not look down on anyone — so others can see a good witness for Christ, and we do not contribute to a bad reputation for the Christian faith.

The Bible encourages us to honor others above ourselves and to love one another. Treating others with respect and dignity is an excellent way to show that love.
