It’s not what you say, but how you say it. When I was younger and even know I always had an attitude. About everything. It wasn’t ever intentional though. I just never stopped to think that I was hurting someone’s feelings or talking with a tone for no reason. I was so hostile towards every person I talked to. Most of the time. This has a lot to do with respect. Respecting others and elders when you are speaking to them. You really honestly just want to treat others the way you want to be treated.
When you are talking to someone it’s important to show the other person that you actually care. Take everything they say with a grain of salt.
He mocks those who mock, but gives grace to the humble. — Proverbs 3:34
Be humble. The definition of humble is having or showing modest in one’s potential.
If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. That’s how I think of it. I think if people did more listening than talking we wouldn’t be half as dumb as we act. God wants us to be nice to others. I don’t know about you guys but every time I look back on a conversation I had with someone and I even felt like I was being the slightest of rude, there is a twinge of guilt there. Because in all honesty it wouldn’t have killed me to be nice. In the end when I get to the gates of heaven it isn’t going to matter.
So people. Come on. Be nice. Be nice to everyone you meet. It shouldn’t be worth your time. It takes way to much energy to have an attitude all the time. Be humble.
