Don’t Be A Jerk

Beth & I are continuing our love series in 1 Corinthians 13. Today, we’re talking about how love is not rude.

To put it simply: don’t be a jerk. Don’t be the kind of person who constantly corrects others, needs to be right or knows everything. You can be right – or you can have friends. 

I used to think that being assertive or direct was rude. Then I met people who could be those things in a loving and kind way. It is possible to be a professional in the corporate world and be successful without be rude! I’ve seen it. I admire it! It’s effective. 

Rudeness is really just a poor excuse for someone without social skills or it can expose someone with an agenda. Relationships shouldn’t be transactional. Don’t have an agenda in your relationships. Just love.

Here’s this week’s Beatles cover.
