Love is not rude…
– 1 Corinthians 13:5 (NIV)
Rudeness always occurs when selfishness reigns. Being rude means I’m not concerned about others.
– Elizabeth Marks
Rudeness is the weak person’s imitation of strength.
– Eric Hoffer
It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it, smoke right from the pit of hell.
– James 3:6 (MSG)
To exude the nature of Christ in the face of rudeness, insensitivity, or cruelty is a supernatural ability that the Holy Spirit gives, not something we can muster up in our own strength.
– Leslie Ludy
