Have you ever been disrespected? Do you remember how you felt in the moment? How you responded? Who disrespected you?
Disrespect occurs when a person is regarded or treated with contempt, discourtesy or rudeness. The reality is at some point in our lives we may be disrespected or treat someone disrespectfully.
King David, in the Bible, experienced disrespect. Before he became King he was humiliated by a man named Nabal, after making a simple request. David was understandably mad and was ready to wipe Nabal out. But Abigail, the wife of Nabal, quickly stepped in to apologise and resolve the issue. 
Abigail helped David to see that God was able to deal with Nabal. She guided David to look beyond the immediate aggravating circumstances to the bigger promise of God. She also invited David to act like a man who is close to the Lord. 
When we face disrespect we too can: 
1. Trust that God is able to deal with those who treat us with contempt.
2. Look beyond the current circumstance to the promises of God. 
3. Walk closely with God who will help us navigate through this present situation with love,  kindness and peace ??
It may not be easy but it is possible to handle disrespect respectfully - Sophia Peart
