We have an obligation to treat all human beings with the highest level of respect. Our politeness should spring from an awareness that we are all created in the image of God.
Today, think of someone you don't treat with the respect that you know you should. The next time you interact with that person, go out of your way to treat him or her with the respect due to someone created in the image of God.
(see Rabbi Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler - Michtav MaiEliyahu, vol.4, pp.246-7; Rabbi Pliskin's "Consulting the Wise")
