“Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.”
Today’s Morsel: Speaking of Jesus, Isaiah wrote in Isaiah chapter 53:3, when He would come wrote, “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” In other words, the God of heaven, the King of Glory, the Savior of the world, would come, be hated, and would not be respected. We may often wonder today why people and children have no respect for each other. They have no apparent respect for their parents, leadership, and those in authority, much less themselves. Paul wrote to the church at Rome that the church must be kindly affectionate one to another. We must have respect towards others, ourselves, and most of all Jesus. If we don’t respect how we look, act, talk, live, sit, dress, and conduct ourselves, chances are no one else will either.
