Not A Spark of Decency


Maurice Baring could relate to not a spark of decency in his time, he would surely find a place in my company, when he states, "Whoever one is, and wherever one is, one is always in the wrong if one is rude." 

David surely experienced the same when he remarked, "Surely in vain I have guarded all that this man has in the wilderness, so that nothing was missed of all that belonged to him; and he has returned me evil for good." 

Have you ever experienced Rudeness from another? How did it make you feel? A lack of respect for each other can cause a breakdown in  the relationship. The word of God gives us advice as to how we should relate to each other. 

Here is a list of instructions as it relates to how we should behave towards each other.


See that no one repays another with evil for evil, but always seek after that which is good for one another and for all people. (1 Thessalonian 5:13)

Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. (Colossians 4:6)


Do to others as you would have them do to you. (Luke 6:31)


“You shall stand up before the gray head and honor the face of an old man. (Leviticus 19:32)

But all things should be done decently and in order. (1 Corinthians 14:40)






It behoves all of us to strive to cultivate the habit of being respectful to each other, irrespective of our age, status in life or our religion. The maxim "do unto others as you would have them do to you" still holds true.

“A man’s manners are a mirror in which he shows his portrait.” Johann wolfgang Von gothe
