Love and Respect
Part of loving others is respecting them too. Ephesians 5:33 says, “However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” Even though this verse is talking about a married couple, I believe that there needs to be respect in any relationship, guys and girls or just friendships. We need to make sure that we, as girls, are respecting the people in our lives, whether it is those in authority or the guys in our life. We also need to make sure we are being respected and not just being used. Remember that there needs to be both love and respect for a relationship to work. If we practice it now, it may come easier for us when we are married.
