Acts 10:17-23

It's tough to earn respect.  It's even tougher when people have prejudices going against them.  Whether they're fat, or dumb, or white, or whatever, it can be tough to overcome that and earn respect.  
One of the lame things about my job is that I know that some people will not respect me pretty much no matter what I do.  They are unhappy with something and so they will find something wrong with what I do.  Or don't do.  I guess it would be dumb to demand their respect.  Or wear myself out trying to earn it.  The best thing to do is probably just do what I know is right and let them do what they have to do.  Life's just easier that way.  JM
