Respect

We should treat sex with the utmost respect. It is our system of reproducing. The genes of past generations are passed on to future generations. Our bodies and all the different systems that sustain our lives is a miracle in itself. And then we enter into an even greater miracle when our bodies produce a living, breathing person containing all the miracles that sustain its life. Sex, then, is a holy, spiritual and physical union between a man and a woman that creates the greatest miracle of all – life.
Why, then, do we treat it as a toy, a game or a tool? We use it as a weapon against others to get our desires of greed. We use it to prove our superiority over others. We use it to demean our partner or others who are affected by our actions. We treat it as a toy to be enjoyed without thought to its consequences or to the responsibilities that it requires.
It’s no wonder, then, that so many treat the offspring of their actions with the same callousness and disrespect as they do the act of sex. They are without conscience or respect, and feel free to terminate the unwanted result of their actions. They think of the life within them as they would a wart or a mole and discard it.
The disrespect of life is not limited to pregnancies, it reveals itself in every aspect of our lives. Video games, movies and TV slaughter people as entertainment, just as the crumbling Roman Empire did in their arenas. The Middle East and now the world are witnessing the slaughter of innocent men, women and children. And it all begins with a lack of respect. People must recognize that they have been “fearfully and wonderfully made” by their creator. When they do, they will respect their creator and begin to respect themselves as miracles of God. Respect and responsibility begins with self and extends to every person on the planet, because they are all the miracle of creation from a loving God. We receive from others, what we wish, want or desire for others. Unless we learn respect, we will never receive respect, and our lives will be a journey of emptiness and defeat. Respect and earn respect.
Blessings, Andy
