COURTESY SCALE

WHAT DO WE WEIGH ON THE COURTESY SCALE?

What do we weigh on the courtesy scale?
Do we say "please," "thank you," and "excuse me?"
Do we greet before we engage people? Example: We are at work and in our initial contacts for the day(s), we approach colleagues about matters - do we greet them first with "Good morning," "hi," "hello" etc? Or do we just forego greetings and start in with our communication?

The first "good morning" I speak is to the Lord whose air we breathe.

The other night someone told me that a certain hotel was not inclined to host anymore Christians because of how discourteously they behaved when they stayed there. That was about the second person who told me about that account.

Another account that I heard was about Christians who lack courteous demeanors and who fail to show love.

What about this? Do we keep our words? Of course, extenuating circumstances can necessitate changes/postponements/cancellations becoming necessary but when those are the cases, do we make contacts to inform of changes? Or do we just discourteously leave people hanging?

Today in the December 2010 issue of GQ magazine I read an interview of Vice President Biden. This is what he said that his father told him, "You're a man of your word. Without your word, you're not a man."

May GOD help us all to habitually practice courtesy and to be people of excellence in the areas of love, integrity, credibility, and responsiveness - among other godly pursuits.

Let us be Spiritually fruity Christians in all affairs of life - for that is the Word of GOD - in practice.

Note: Even when we must be stern and firm, love should be a focus.

Thank God there are still many courteous Christians. Those who are not courteous give the rest of us a bad name. God bless.
