In our lives we can enjoy the important “D”…only if we practice many forms of “R”.
Every human has the right to the "D" (DEMAND) of certain things. Every one of us has the basic right to demand to be treated with respect, to be protected or at least kept out of ‘harms way’, never be in a society that is short of ‘drinking’ water, and to never be forced to go to bed hungry. These are human basics.
To qualify for this "D" “demand”, every human has (1)responsibilities for working hard and achieving a good education. There are times when all of us must exercise(2)restraint. It is only natural that we all show (3)respect for others. It’s expected that we all have(4) reverence for loyalty and honesty. There are times when we must be(5)rational/reasonable. We are expected to avoid being (6) rattlebrained. We are all expected to have the ability to (7) reach or communicate with others. Others can expect us to be (8)realistic, sane and reasonable. (9)rebirth as in resurrection is to be a goal.
We will not be forgiven for being (10) reckless or mad-brained. We will be expected to (11) recognize our own short-comings and acknowledge the good-points in others. Others will desire that we express (12) refinement and avoid vulgarity. We should expect others to demand that we (13) refrain from speaking falsely. All others have the right to demand that we show (14) regard and honor everyone and avoid hate. Being (15) reliable is an expected quality. Being (16) righteous is a godly quality.
People admire (17) remorsefulness. A (18) repugnant person is avoided. We should always make (18) respect a guarded quality. Successful persons normally (19) restrain selfish desires. Wise persons think before exercising (20) retaliation or revenge.(21) Riches will not make one godly. (22) Ridicule doesn’t foster friendship and assistance. We all have the (23) right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but not at the expense of unrightness and wickedness. It isn’t necessary to be (24) rude. Avoid repeating a (25) rumor. A (26) ruthless person is never admired.
