STOP AND THINK – Until you have learned to be tolerant with those who do not always agree with you . . .  you will be neither successful nor happy. (Napoleon Hill, American author of the New Thought movement)

Hill adds that you will not be happy, “… until you have cultivated the habit of saying some kind word of those whom you do not admire; until you have formed the habit of looking for the good instead of the bad there is in others.” Respecting others and valuing their worth are necessary to understanding who they are and building a meaningful relationship.

Give to everyone what you owe them: . . . if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor (Romans 13:7). Show proper respect to everyone (1 Peter 2:17).
