Are Manners Biblical?

Are Manners Biblical?

 It is unnecessary to thank people for anything, we should only thank God.

(This statement is untrue because)

1Peter 3:8 ¶ 
Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous

Meaning of the word courteous: polite, respectful, or considerate in manner.
synonyms: polite, well mannered, civil, respectful, well behaved, well bred, well spoken, mannerly; gentlemanly, chivalrous, gallant; gracious, obliging, considerate, pleasant, cordial, urbane, polished, refined, courtly, civilized

Examples Of Being Courteous Would Be- Showing appreciation, like saying, "thank you." Saying, "you're welcome, which expresses you were glad to help."
apologizing, saying "pardon me, or excuse me." Saying the word, "please" shows that we are not demanding. It is being considerate of others feelings.It is honoring others. Saying, Yes Sir, No Sir/ Yes Mam, No Mam is showing respect for authorities and also honoring the elderly. We are to show love and consideration one to another. Being gentle, kind and thoughtful. (These are things we should work on and become better at each day.) It helps keep peace and unity.)

1Peter 2:17 
Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

Colossians 4:6 
Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

Proverbs 18:23 
The poor useth intreaties; but the rich answereth roughly. 
Poor people are more grateful.

Proverbs 18:24 
A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly

1Thesalonians 2:7 
But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:
2Timothy 2:24
And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, {patient: or, forbearing} 
Titus 3:2 
To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
