8 episodes on manners, etiquette and character.
John Adams meant all of one’s behavior when he said “manners” in the quote pictured. Today, normally, when we say “manners” we mean the little details of deference and politeness. I would suggest that when we teach our children these details, they are a sign for the bigger character issues that are so extremely important for success and happiness. Character is the fount of action, filled by God’s direction, and issuing in a good life: shalom.
