Wisdom in Etiquette

Not all of us got everything our parents, family and tutors tried to get across to us as we have progressed through life. Occasionally (if not more often) we say something or do something that isn’t in keeping with those things that are most proper in relating to others. For some of us, there are probably people who think we grew up on the back side of the wilderness without any effort from a parent to impart wisdom and etiquette. But God is wise and He is also good and merciful to the point that He will give us the wisdom in etiquette we have not absorbed thus far.
“But the wisdom from above is first pure [morally and spiritually undefiled], then peace-loving [courteous, considerate], gentle, reasonable [and willing to listen], full of compassion and good fruits. It is unwavering, without [self-righteous] hypocrisy [and self-serving guile].” (Js.3:17, Amp)
