Days of Awe (continued...)

Day 5: Honor, Kavod

Every human being is created in the image of God and yet many of us judge others like it's our job. We find every flaw in their appearance, character, and actions, and magnify it. Moreover, we do not act with honor when we feel jealousy over another's good fortune instead of celebrating their success and knowing that happiness is not a zero sum game. To act with honor is to treat everyone with great dignity, to look beneath the surface to find that we are all on equal footing as human beings.
How would your life be different if you didn't judge others or feel jealous when someone else has an achievement? How might you repair any hurt you may have caused this year from acting without enough kavod? How might you practice this middah in this coming year?
