WHEN YOU REALLY HAVE CLASS

(From an article on the web.  Author Unknown.)

Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident. It can handle whatever comes along.

Class has a sense of humour. It knows that a good laugh is the best lubricant for oiling the machinery of human relations.

Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from past mistakes.

Class knows that good manners are nothing more than a series of small, inconsequential sacrifices.

Class bespeaks an aristocracy that has nothing to do with ancestors or money. Some wealthy “bluebloods” have no class, while some individuals who are struggling to make ends meet are loaded with it.

Class is real. It can’t be faked.

Class is comfortable in its own skin. It never puts on airs.

Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is already up and need not strive to look better by making others look worse.

Class can “walk with kings and keep its virtue and talk with crowds and keep the common touch.”  (Thank you, Rudyard Kipling.) Everyone is comfortable with the person who has class because that person is comfortable with himself.

If you have class, you’ve got it made!

If you DON’T have class, no matter what else you have, it doesn’t make ANY difference.

If you have love for all people then you really have class!  Pray and ask God to fill you with His Love.

The following passage from The Holy Bible tells us what real love is.

1 Corinthians 13

1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,but do not have love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

5 It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,

10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.

11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

                                          

God is love and He loves all people.  God will judge all people at the end of their life.  Meanwhile we must not judge people because God is still working His Purpose out in all of us, until the end of the age and we do not know when that will be.  But always be prepared; it might be soon!         Margaret Mainwaring.
