April 2: Respect


Scripture Lesson: 1 Peter 3:13-17


On this date in 1972, after playing a round of golf with his coaches on Easter Sunday, Mets’ manager Gil Hodges suffered a fatal heart attack just two days shy of his 48th birthday. The club later named first base coach Yogi Berra as manager. Dodger great and former teammate Roy Campanella, on hearing about Hodges’ death, said “If you had a son, it would be a great thing to have him grow up to be just like Gil Hodges. Gil Hodges is a Hall of Fame man.”


In our Scripture lesson today, Peter urges us to earn the respect of those around us by living the right way. In the face of persecutions, we are to stand for Christ in such a way that folks who speak badly of us will be ashamed of what they said. It is important for us to earn the respect of others by living for Jesus in every aspect of our lives. There was no man more respected for the way he conducted himself on a daily basis than Gil Hodges. Wouldn’t it be great if we were that respected for the way we live out our faith every day?

  1. Why is it important to earn the respect of others in how we live for Christ?

  2. What should our life look like in order to do earn that respect?

  3. Do you believe that living a Christ-like example can make a difference in someone else’s life? Why or why not?

The more like Christ we become, the more of a difference we can make for Christ in this world.
