Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
(Romans 12:10 NIV)
The Seed of Value is the commitment to seeing each other as God’s special creations made uniquely in God’s image. We must sow the Seed of Value to meet the need for mutual respect. We sow that seed when we learn to honor each other in everything we say or do. Turn your house into a guest house. Become the host or hostess towards your spouse and family. You will be forced to put on the mindset of service and humility that is always needed to give your guests the best. Because we want our guests to return, we never take them for granted. We want them to think highly of us so that our reputations grow among their friends. Let’s try treating our loved ones the same way. Become the host that gives the most. Then learn to rejoice in each other’s uniqueness.
God rejoices in His uniqueness: within the Trinity, the Father, Son, and Spirit enjoy each other’s distinctive personalities. To love like above, we must do the same. Differences should be a point of celebration, not a reason for separation.
