Esteem

Additional Links

Is that high and exalted thought of, and value for any thing which arises from a since of its own intrinsic worth and excellency. Esteem is higher than simple approbation, which is a decision of the judgment; it is the commencement of affection: it is a degree of love for others, on account of their pleasing qualities, though they should not immediately interest ourselves; by which it is distinguished from gratitude. Our esteem of God manifests itself in never mentioning his name without reverence; in bowing the knee; in prayer and praise; in all the several forms of outward devotion, and in quick resentment of any dishonour done to him. Our high esteem or veneration of any man appears in an humble, respectful behaviour toward him, speaking his praises, imitating his excellencies, and resenting his dishonour.
