Good Manners List and Poster

Rudeness is epidemic in our culture.

THE DECLINE OF MANNERS

The Scriptures talk about a day when the love of most will grow cold.

People will be:

  • lovers of self
  • lovers of money
  • proud, arrogant, abusive
  • disobedient to their parents
  • ungrateful….

Some say that day has arrived.

WE’RE RAISING AMBASSADORS.

As homeschool parents, we have the opportunity to influence our culture in a profound and healthy way.

We’re representatives from another country—and our King rules with the Law of Love.

We’re raising ambassadors. How do we train them?

APPLY VIRTUE TO DAILY LIFE.

The fruit of the Spirit, as described in Galatians 5:22-23, is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

Applying those virtues to daily life, a number of training targets emerge.

Love can be expressed as:

  • listening without interrupting
  • apologizing when you are wrong
  • treating others as you wish to be treated

Kindness can be expressed as:

  • holding the door open for others
  • offering to help carry groceries or other packages
  • speaking words of encouragement.

Faithfulness can be expressed as:

  • obeying your mother and father
  • honoring your elders and those in authority (unless doing so violates a biblical principle)
  • doing your chores without being asked

Self-control can be expressed as:

  • behaving in a way appropriate for your circumstance (sometimes that means no running or climbing, speaking quietly, waiting patiently, )
  • making eye contact when you talk with someone
  • shaking hands firmly and confidently when you meet someoneood in your mouth, etc.

Don’t underestimate the power of good manners. Even small acts of kindness can make a big impact.
