Being condescending is a tone of speech that makes listeners feel that the speaker is talking down to them. Gen 44:14-15. The bible teaches us to speak with words season with salt and grace. Col 4:6. The Bible also teaches men to be careful with their words because emotion with its finger on the trigger of the tongue, causes much damage. Jas 3:5-10. And the proud attitude of looking down on others, considering oneself to be so much better, is just plain ignorant. 1 Cor 8:2. 1 Cor 1:27. One of the virtues of being wise is to work with others on their level and understand that none is greater because of degrees from institutions of higher learning. 1 Cor 9:19-23. Rom 12:15-16. Matt 18:1-5.
Such is true because all men die and Jesus won’t judge men because of degrees or lack thereof. Eccl 3:18-21. Matt 25:32-33. So let none of us be guilty of practicing condescending speech; instead let us speak to each other as equals because in the eyes of God we are. Acts 17:26. Acts 10:34-35. Rom 2:11. Rom 3:23.
