“I Get No Respect!” A Powerful Way to Counter the Culture

For You From The Word

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (! John 3:1, NIV)

For You To Think About

Respect Life Month“I get no respect!”

It’s a cry everywhere from the hearts of the disenfranchised, vulnerable, and marginalized.

“For the Christian, it is an absolute imperative to respect, love and promote the life of every brother and sister,” said Karol Wojtyła, better known as Pope John Paul II, underscoring the hunger for dignity and need for respect in each human spirit.

But human life is under constant attack in our culture today, from the moment of conception to natural death. Our throwaway society devalues the individual.

Our brothers and sisters of the Roman Catholic faith take the opportunity during October to celebrate Respect Life Month. They teach children and youth the truth about the dignity of the human person and the gift of every person’s life by talking about respect for life and teaching biblical principles about life.

It is a powerful way to counter the cultural theme of disrespect for life.

Be different. Respect life instead.

For You To Pray

Merciful Lord,

Allow me to proactively counter disrespect for life. Let me give it.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
