“Finally, be all like-minded, compassionate, loving as brothers, tenderhearted, courteous.” – 1 Peter 3:8
Definition: cour·te·ous/ˈkərtēəs/ Polite, respectful or considerate in manner.
Reason Chosen: My husband actually suggested this one. It has become quite clear to us that the girls are learning how to push each others’ buttons. They are not showing courtesy to one another. They are pretty good at saying “please” and “thank you,” but could use some more instruction on table manners and other polite behavior. We have a great method to help for interrupting, but we’ve had to work on that more lately. Overall, we just need some general courtesy into beginning to think of how our actions, voices and attitudes effect others around them.
