Respect and Honor
While at Winter Jam last year, I listened to their performance, and they shared about what they mean by the return to respect and honor.
Here is a quote on what these Respect and Honor bracelets mean:
“This is a message especially for ladies. Often our culture says to talk and to act and to dress like you are worth nothing more than a penny. But there is a God who says you are priceless.”
But not only girls wear these bracelets! Luke and Joel also wear them as a reminder to step up and stand up, to treat women with respect and honor.
It would be amazing to start a counter-cultural revolution of returning to respect and honor concerning the opposite gender. Our culture has objectified women (through immodesty and pornography) and removed a lot of the respect out of relationships. Some dating has turned into self-focused instead of God-focused.
I wear the Respect and Honor bracelet on my right wrist – so that when I meet a guy for the first time and shake his hand, I look down at see how I am supposed to treat him: with respect and honor.
I have shared with you my tendency to jump to conclusions with young men. I have to stop myself from seeing them as their potential (He’d make a nice ____________) instead of seeing them for who they are now: a brother in the Lord.
If you are interested in joining this counter-cultural movement, you can purchase the bracelet for five dollars here
