Does the Bible Teach that Respect is Earned or Freely Given?
I believed that I didn’t have any obligation to show respect to someone unless they earned it. Our culture agreed with me: we respect people who are inspiring, possess admirable talents or reach respect-worthy positions in the public eye. But what if people don’t have to earn our respect?
What’s Your Identity?
We tend to ignore the question of identity, because it can feel uncomfortable or overwhelming, but I think that's a mistake. I think our identity through Jesus Christ is a great gift and in fact, the Bible tells us we should become what we already are in Christ.
