Very good. We should respect and love other
creatures created by God. And in life, if we give
something, we should not expect something in
return. It’s better to give than to receive, as they say.
And because, if you’ll give something to your
fellowmen, especially to the needy ones, God will
repay you for your generosity a thousand folds.
In terms of respect, we should also respect everything,
everyone as we respect our selves. If you wanted to
be respected by others, the you must first learn
