We started this year off right with a little etiquette training from Mrs. Kim Swafford. Today was the beginning of a two day intensive on practicing etiquette; and it was eye opening. “Manners are taught and caught” says Mrs. Kim. It is interesting to think that we are not born with a natural nature to practice good manners. This makes sense when you think about human beings being imperfect in this world, and it explains why so often people have conflicts. If we all knew how to act kind to someone or knew how to disagree without starting a fire, then we would save so much time from being mad at one another. This time could be used towards building relationships and loving one another. Can you imagine a family who actively practice good etiquette, or a step further a church who actively practice good etiquette. This kind of environment would be so uplifting and positive to be around and it would make it so much easier to love one another; like we are supposed too. We would be living the second biggest commandment God has for us, loving your neighbor as yourself. It would be amazing. Let’s start with us, the one person we can actually control, lets be kind, well behaved and chivalrous. Lets love people.
“But I tell you who hear me: love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.” Luke 6:27-28
Show manners and be an example for the world to follow.
