Respect is a “feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities,qualities, or achievements. Respect involves obeying people, but certain people. Your parents for example, deserve great amounts of respect because they dedicated their lives and unbelievable amounts of love to you. Rules of showing respect are always to answer when you’re called or asked a question, say hello to them when you see them, hold the door for them, and asked if they need help, depending on the situation. I respect my parents everyday, but sometimes when I get very upset with them and I act out and disrespect them by yelling, showing attitude, or saying something I shouldn’t have. If you disrespect a person, most likely they wouldn’t respect you anymore.
The trick to always being respectful is by being kind. One of the ways you can respect a person is by seeing the person’s point of view to understand a situation.When you do that, you get to understand them on a different level and see the positive side to things. In the NIV version of the Bible, in Matthew 7:12, it says: ”So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets”. I chose this quote because it’s describing what respect is and how we should us it. This quote means that we should treat others how we would like to be treated everyday which is with kindness. This also sums up what the Laws and prophets are about and how they’re used.
Responsibility is “the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone”. In life, we all have responsibilities. It’s a part of growing up because it lets us take matters into our own hands and decide what to do and how to do it in your own way, most likely without supervision. Testing our responsibility is how people know when to trust one another with important matters. It is not easy to be responsible all the time because it involves having a good memory and good skills for the things you’re responsible for. I think I am responsible, but I don’t have the best memory. For someone my age, my way of being responsible is by doing homework and chores like walking the dog, emptying the dishwasher, and remembering to do the the laundry. If I forget, I let my mom down and then she thinks I’m irresponsible and just don’t want to do it. But that’s not true, I want her to trust me with more things so she knows that she can rely on me. Responsibility is a hard thing to keep up but we all have to take initiative in our lives so we can grow.
Being responsible and respectful help people think about what the kind of person you are. Another quote from the NIV Bible: “But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load.” from Galatians 6:4-5. I chose this quote because it shows how responsibility is used and how people know whether or not a person is responsible for their own actions. This quote means that these people are responsible for their own work and will do their work alone, not with the help from a neighbor because we are all trusted to do our own jobs by ourselves with no help to test our independence.
These things help shape my faith and life because I have to be responsible for how I treat people around me because it’s my job as a follower of God to respect what He and Jesus did for us and to treat the world with respect. The concept of respect is like “one of the Ten Commandments that says you should honor your mother and father because respect is a sign of honor” and the concept of responsibility is making sure that we honor our God and only God and take ownership for our actions so that one day we can confess to God and He will forgive us. I want to be a completely responsible and respectful person soon so that I will truly live up to mine and God’s goals and so I can treat everyone equally and fairly.
