Connect with Respect

Gain respect with behavior
With hard work and endurance
Loose respect with negative actions
With negligence and incompetence

Some act as though
They know everything
Thinking they are something
But not doing anything

They set others up for failure
Refusing to give advice
Doing things for personal advantage
Not being very nice

Others gain respect
By giving it their all
Helping others along
To make sure all stand tall

They expect excellence
Go to great lengths
Take on challenges
And know their strengths

They respect the strengths of others
Practice kindness with everyone
Listen before making tough calls
Greet with a smile and have much fun

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
