One Good Thought: Courteous to All

A Christian must be courteous to all. His words and deeds should breathe with the grace of the Holy Spirit, which abides in his soul, so that in this way he might glorify the name of God.
+Saint Nektarius of Aegina

Saint Nektarius said being careful to say good things helps us to avoid doing bad things. He said being polite shows love. Rudeness reveals inner selfishness and looks ugly.

How does that look in your life? Can you think of three ways you showed good manners today?

Lord, help me to be kind in my speech and to care for others in the things I do. Help me to mind my manners each day.
