The Aesir gods respect Odin because of his great wisdom, which he worked very hard to get. At the beginning of the world, he even gave up one of his eyes in exchange for a drink from a wisdom-well. Odin may be missing an eye, but thanks to that sacrifice, he can see in his mind everything that happens in the past, present, and future. Odin's wisdom is what makes him such a good king.
