Living It Out-Day 6-Due Respect

"Living It Out" thought for today:
As parents, we expect obedience and respect from our children, after all, look what we've done for them!  We say, even if only to ourselves, we've given you shelter, fed you, raised you for all these years and you owe it to us to show honor.  How easily our defenses become more about us than having the attitude of Christ and showing our children the character of God.
God is so gracious to not have that same mindset with us when we do not show Him the honor and respect He more than deserves.
 Malachi 1:6, "A son honors his father, and a servant his master.  If I am a master, where is the respect due me?, says the Lord Almighty."
Curly girl question today for "Living It Out"....
Do I give you the Lord the same respect and honor I expect from my children?  Others?  How much greater it should be than even that!  Great is the Lord and worthy to be praised!  Selah
