Virtue of the Week


“O people of God! I admonish you to observe courtesy, for above all it is the prince of virtues… Who is illumined with the light of courtesy…hath indeed attained a sublime station.”
-Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 214

Courtesy is to be polite and to have good manners. It is to be considerate of others. It is a way of speaking and acting with people which gives them a feeling of being valued and respected. “Please”, “Thank you”, “Excuse me”, and “You’re welcome” are courteous expressions which let people know you appreciate them and care about their feelings. Courtesy brightens people’s lives. It helps to make life graceful.

Signs of Success

I am practicing courtesy when I…

Show others that I value and respect them

Remember to treat elders, parents, teachers, and children politely

Think about how my actions affect others

Eat, speak, and move graciously

Make requests instead of demands

Greet people with a smile.

I am courteous. I speak and act in gracious ways. I show others that I value and respect them.
