Oct. 15 ~ Civility won’t always be the funnest or funniest response. It can be hard being an adult. #civility
Yeah, I know. Incivility can be funny, and fun. But we have to have our sights set on higher goals. Have we mentioned that civility has a price tag? Indeed, it does. And the person choosing civility most often pays it.
We like to get a laugh. We like to “score a point” for our side. It often takes a mature measure of self-control and wisdom to choose to be civil, to choose to be civil instead of funny or vindictive.

I’m tired of being the adult! I want someone from a differing viewpoint to do the work! OK, OK, yeah, that’s the wrong tactic. *sigh* I guess I do care about their spiritual growth more than my desire to not be mature. Grrr, stop making me grow up! 🙂
