Navigating the Red Zone

Matt Parks · December 31, 2017

When our lives are running smoothly, it’s easy to show respect to those around us. But in stressful situations, it gets tougher to keep our attitudes in check. When we hit our personal Red Zones, those affected the most are often the people closest to us. How can we make sure we’re keeping an eye on what we take in and what we weed out—and what that means when it comes to how we respect others?

If we’re focused on outdoing each other in the way we honor others, we’ll never lose the honor competition.

If we’re representing Jesus, we need to look at the world through His eyes, and follow His command to respect and value every person in His world.
