A Rude Era by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/16/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Have you noticed how much rudeness has become part of our culture?

If you turn on prime time television, what will you find? Rudeness. TV writers seem to think that you can’t be funny without cutting someone else down or being crude. You especially see women on television who are crass and uncouth.

Now men and women can both be rude, but I think it’s particularly unattractive in us as women. It shows a lack of love, too. In 1 Corinthians, Paul says, “Love is not rude.”

That means that when we learn manners, we’re showing love. When we strike up a friendly conversation, we’re showing love. When we’re being considerate or sensitive, we’re showing love.

Our world sees plenty of rudeness. I think it’s time for us women to show what true, godly love is like.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
