Hang Up the Phone!

Enjoying lunch with a few pastors and leaders, a co-worker received a call on his cell phone. Rather than simply not answering, or excusing himself for a few minutes, he answered and rudely carried on a conversation interrupting all.

Later I tried to politely speak to him about this lack of manners but he disagreed.

It is interesting that none of the men we were meeting with seem to think much of our organization and ministry. Could it be because of our lack of manners and proper respect for others?

As Christians we need to remember that manners are Christ's kindness and respect for others.

“So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other …” (Colossians 3:12-13a, nasb).
