Relationships always take precedence over our rights and rank. (Mike Lee, pastor)
We stand strong on the rights of individuals, and many people today are demanding to have what they consider to be their rights, no matter who may be in the way. Some of those so-called “rights” might really just be preferences. Wouldn’t you be willing to give up your “right” to a front-row seat in order to preserve or develop a meaningful relationship with someone else?
Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another. (Romans 12:10)
