Lessons on How to Treat People - Part 1


"There is no favoritism with God." Romans 2:11 (HCSB)

This week I am going to share some Lessons on Treating People Right that I have gleaned from emails sent to me. Some of these you may have read - but the important point is do you apply them.

- First Important Lesson - The Cleaning Lady:

During the second month of college, one professor gave a pop quiz. This is what a student wrote about the experience.

"I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions until I read the last one: 'What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?' Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50's, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.

'Absolutely, ' said the professor. 'In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say 'hello.'

I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy."

Today, make sure that everyone you come in contact with feels that they are the most important person in the world.
