It is never or job to demand respect. It is part of our Christian duty to demonstrate respect, to show it. When you show it you Sow it. Like a seed. If you keep sowing it you will reap a harvest of respect, because you sowed it. Not because you demanded it. All the things of God work through the law of seed time harvest. You reap what you sow. Be courteous to others, give respect and you will get it back.
