Both Love & Respect Should be Unconditional

Why is true love considered unconditional but respect supposedly should be earned?

I believe that the Love of God and the Fear of God are unconditional because He is the same, yesterday, today and forever.

Loving people and Respecting people should also be unconditional because they are made in the image of God. Respect shouldn’t have to be earned any more than Love should have to be earned.

Just like the evil woman should still be loved, the evil man should still be respected.

Respect doesn’t mean to condone or justify evil actions. Just like love doesn’t mean to condone or justify evil actions.

1 Peter 2:17 Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

Matthew 19:19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Ephesians 5:33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
