    We should love, not in word or with the tongue,
    but in deed and truth.1 John 3:18.

    We should be willing to perform acts of love for our brothers “in secret,” or out of the limelight, when this is possible. (Matt. 6:1-4) We should also take the lead in showing honor to others. (Rom. 12:10) Jesus set the pattern in honoring others by performing the lowliest of tasks. (John 13:3-5, 12-15)

    We may have to work hard to develop the humility needed to show honor to others in this way. Even the apostles could not fully understand Jesus’ actions until they received holy spirit. (John 13:7)

    We can show honor to others by not thinking too much of ourselves because of our education, material possessions, or privileges in Jehovah’s service.

    (Rom. 12:3)

    And rather than envying those who receive praise, we rejoice with them even if we feel that we deserve equal honor or a share of the credit for what was done.

    Always liked the account about Jesus washing the feet of his disciples when they gathered for the Passover meal.

    Jesus taught the disciples how to treat each other by showing them how to do so, not just telling them to do it.
