The Golden Rule

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.

Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times I fall short and do not treat others in the same way I want to be treated. Help me to do better by loving others as Christ has loved me. Amen

Love Is Not Rude    

Luke 6 31

 

Verse of the Day: Luke 6:31

Do to others as you would have them do to you.

 

Love is not rude.   No one likes to be around a rude, impolite, ill-mannered or unpleasant person. When we’re the one being rude we may not see it as such a big deal.  Oh, but when someone is being rude to us it is a very big deal.  The bottom line is we need to treat others, especially our spouse, the way we would like to be treated, with kindness.
