Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets. Matthew 7:12 (NLT)

If we don’t respect others’ boundaries, we judge them, and our boundaries will also be judged. If we respect their boundaries, they are more likely to respect ours as well. As we deal with each other, we have to do so with gentleness and respect. Our relationship will grow at the pace that we are both moving; unless we are the slower one, we cannot hurry the process. Father, protect and guide us on this journey. Amen.
