During a recent conference, I observed people getting up and leaving in the middle of the speaker's presentation. Their topic was interesting and informative. Can we not sit still for thirty minutes? I wish I didn't notice such things, but I do. A servant of God spends countless hours preparing a message that we should probably hear, and they are often interrupted by bladder issues or whatever causes a person to walk out. While I understand that unforeseen circumstances can arise, respecting others and handling any needs beforehand is essential. Would Jesus walk out while one of his beloved was speaking? Absolutely not. He would be attentive, listening carefully to every word. As followers of Christ, we should emulate his behavior and show love and attentiveness toward one another. Let us strive to be mindful of our actions, remembering that God is always watching.
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus Philippians 2:4-5
