“Out of respect for Christ, be courteously reverent to one another.” Ephesians 5:21 MSG
Christ’s instructions are clear in matters of etiquette and courtesy; “In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets” (Matthew :12 NASB). Jesus didn’t say “In some things, treat people as you wish to be treated.” And, He didn’t say, “From time to time, treat others with kindness.” He said we should treat others as we wish to be treated in every aspect of our daily lives. Be a little kinder than necessary today to family members, friends, and total strangers. And, as you consider all the things that Christ has done in your life, honor Him with your words and your deeds.
