I work in retail, working with strangers is what I do every day. Some are wonderful and indeed a pleasure, but not always. But when someone very rude is encountered, its better to forgive them than let them ruin your own peace of the Lord. Better to pray for them for the Holy Spirit to enlighten them in the ways the Lord knows best.
Knowledge and Wisdom are both good and worth finding, but they also have truly bad downsides, just study the life of Solomon to see the truth of this. Love does not puff up. Perfect Love drives out pride. Faith, Hope, and Love are the greatest of all things we can strive for, and the greatest of these are Love. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean NOT on your own understanding. In all your ways aknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.
