Love Is Not Rude

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
