Respect People

Abraham was a great man on the earth, yet, he treated others respectfully. When his wife died, he approached a certain people, asking if he could bury his beloved on property that he would purchase from them. They respected Abraham greatly and expressed that they would be willing to do so. Watch what Abraham did next, “Then Abraham stood up and bowed himself to the people of the land, the sons of Heth” (Genesis 23:7).
Christians can be so disrespectful sometimes toward their own brethren and toward the world. However, if we are children of Abraham, we will live as he did.
Do you honor and respect people the way Abraham did? If not, why not? Will your explanation fly with God?
