How Do You Make People Feel?

I will show you the most excellent way.
                     —1 Corinthians 12:31

Maya Angelou said, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Paul wrote, “I will show you the most excellent way”—then sketched the way of love: love is patient, kind, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud, is not rude, is not self-seeking, is not easily angered, keeps no record of wrongs (1 Cor 13:4–5).

All of those traits zero in on how we treat people.

When asked her opinion of British statesmen William Gladstone and Benjamin Disraeli, Lady Randolph Churchill replied that when she sat next to Gladstone, she thought him the cleverest person in England, but when she sat next to Disraeli, she thought she was the cleverest person in England.
