Attitude towards people

    1 Peter 2:17 says, “Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.”

    Peter here gives us the general attitude that we are to have towards others.

    Honor towards all people. Honor is “to place value upon”. We are to realize the value of each and every soul in the world regardless of what they have done or where they are in life.

    Love the brotherhood. We are to have a deep love for other Christians. We are to love one another as Christ loves us.

    Fear God. We are to have a respect for God, His commandments, His punishments and rewards.

    Honor the King. The rulers, while often evil are in their position because God allowed them to be there. We are to honor them for their position.
