Whatever you are, be a good one.
Whatever you do, do it well.
However you act, just be nice.
“Be nice to people, try to help people if you can. Be fair, honest, considerate, and understanding…help people who are struggling.” Judge Frank Caprio*
Good advice for sure. And guess what, scripture backs it up too.
“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4.32
“…do good and lend to others expecting nothing in return. ” Luke 6.35
“…get understanding.” Proverbs 4.7b
“An honest witness tells the truth…” Proverbs 12.17a
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Matthew 7.12
(The Lord) “delights in people who are trustworthy.” Proverbs 12.22b
“Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do.” Philippians 4.5
When we do these things, we will help others not only see us…
but will help them become the church too.
Go, be nice!
When we apply the ‘golden’ rule (see Matthew verse above), the world will be a better place.
