August "Life App" Virtue is: RESPECT...showing others they are important by what you say and do.
August Bible Verse: "Show proper respect to everyone." 1 Peter 2:17
In Week One, we meet a Roman Commander who was in charge of a whole group of men, but was still respectful of Jesus' authority to heal his servant. Bottom Line: Show respect to God because He's in charge of everything.
In Week Two, we discover that the early church sometimes struggled with how to respect people different from them. James reminds us that it's what's on the inside that shapes our respect for people. Bottom Line: You respect God when you respect the people God made.
In Week Three, Paul writes a clear directive on honoring our parents, and he's just repeating the same message Moses gave to the people of Israel years before. Bottom Line: You respect God when you respect your parents.
In Week Four, we find David being hunted and hiding from King Saul. Yet, when David had a clean shot at taking out Saul, he decided to respect the position God had given the King and, instead, let God take care of the situation. Bottom Line: You respect God when you respect the people He's put in charge.
