Be courteous

Last night I meditated on be courteous.  1 Peter 3:8 says, “Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous.”  My margin  uses humble for courteous.

Yesterday I was in a situation that was between a rock and a hard place.  I could feel my flesh wanting to rise, yet at the same time fully aware I’m a representative of Him.

There is no room for our flesh in the word courteous.  At all times and in every situation we are to walk in humility.  Humility ushers in the grace we need in the moment.  Our flesh thwarts grace.  Romans 13:14 says, “But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh.”  We block our flesh when we choose to humble ourselves.
