The Golden Rule

Matthew 7:12

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 7:12       

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.       

The concept of the “Golden Rule” is a general truth that is found not only in the Holy Bible but appears in many other religions. It’s so basic and fundamental that we teach it to our children yet, we as adults sometimes forget to act according to this principle. Jesus’ teachings go further than the “Golden Rule”. He also teaches that we should treat everyone with fairness, justice, kindness, compassion, respect, mercy and forgiveness. Furthermore, He teaches us to love our enemies and pray for those who persecute you. We don’t always treat others the way we want to be treated and sometimes we fall short but thank God that the Holy Spirit convicts us and moves us to repentance. Do your best to love each other as Christ has loved you.
