I realized long ago that respect is a prerequisite for love of any kind. I have never seen an exception to this rule. Once trust and respect are dead, its time to end the communication, unless God says differently. Why? Because only God can fix such deep damage to a relationship.

 Yep! Show respect and kindness to friends, family, strangers, and even enemies (though the active kindness part has to be done with caution/wisdom.) Christ calls us to love our neighbors, just as Christ first loved us. Not one of us deserved such grace before His cleansing, healing, & redemption, so let us show what grace and mercy we safely can to those in our lives. (This doesn't mean you can't defend yourself from those who would hurt you.)
