Why does reverence matter?

Welcome to this edition of your Weekly Winning Resource all about the word reverence. Reverence is a deep respect and it can also describe how you treat someone or something. Why does reverence matter? Paul Woodruff writes, “Because It Is A Forgotten Virtue. Power without reverence is aflame with arrogance, while service without reverence is smoldering toward rebellion. Politics without reverence is blind to the general good and deaf to advice from people who are powerless. Because reverence fosters leadership and education. Most important, because reverence kindles warmth in friendship and family life. And because without reverence, things fall apart. People do not know how to respect each other and themselves. An army cannot tell the difference between what it is and a gang of bandits. Without reverence, we cannot explain why we should treat the natural world with respect. Without reverence, a house is not a home, a boss is not a leader, an instructor is not a teacher. Without reverence, we would not even know how to learn reverence. To teach reverence, you must find the seeds of reverence in each person and help them grow.” To live in reverence means that I am not above any other human being. Without reverence, pride, prejudice, and self righteousness abound.
