Deference vs. Rudeness

Deference vs. Rudeness

Definition: Limiting my freedom so I do not offend the tastes of those around me



I Will….

* Notice those around me

* Respect the feelings of others

* Not use offensive language

* Not play loud music in public

* Be careful how I dress


Week One Activities

(Teaching ~ Notice those around me)

Practice acknowledging family members at home and the importance of doing so in public as well

Discuss how they would feel if someone ignored them


Week Two Activities

(Teaching ~ Respect the feelings of others)

Teach family members to be sensitive to others feelings and beliefs

Each person is different and we need to treat all as we would like to be treated


Week Three Activities

(Teaching ~ Not use offensive language)

Memorize Ephesians 4:29

Teach that being kind is not just in action, but in word as well


Week Four Activities

(Teaching ~ Not play loud music in public)

Not everyone enjoys loud music like you might.

Babies might be sleeping, headaches, etc. must be considered


Week Five Activities

(Teaching ~ Be careful how I dress)

How we dress can affect others.

Being modest is a great way to show you care about yourself and God

    Excellent! Not only have you paired good ideas with their scriptural basis, but you’ve given action steps to implement the transformation, not just talk about it. Well done 🙂 And I love your connection of dress with respecting other people. I certainly have felt very disrespected in the presence of some people’s clothing choices. Blessings from Be Not Weary today 🙂

      I find it easier to implement a new character trait with weekly activities, so I hope they help someone else too! 🙂 Thank you for stoppin by and for your kind words! Blessings!
