Perfect Courtesy

Are we demonstrating "perfect courtesy" to others?  Titus 3:1-2 reads, "Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people."

What does this mean for an online community?

We can demonstrate humility.  Philippians 2:3 reads, "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.  Rather, in humility value others above yourselves."

We can demonstrate gentleness.  1 Peter 3:15 reads, "But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord.  Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.  But do this with gentleness and respect. . "

We can demonstrate kindness.  Galatians 5:22-23a reads, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control."

These online forums and live chat discussions provide our online community an opportunity to engage with each other and build each other up in Christ.

What other ways can we demonstrate "Perfect Courtesy" in this online community?  Please comment.

God bless.
