Most of us have hear the "Golden Rule" at some point in our lives. We may have even heard it so often that we take it for granted...or even ignore it! Regardless, this rule can serve as good advice, no matter our age. We can be reminded that what we give is what will often be what is returned to us!
Jesus reminds us that we should treat others the way we would like to be treated. Even if we are treated differently than we would like, we need to be prepared to respond differently. To prepare ourselves, we need to know God. We need to know His love, His comfort, His compassion, and His respect. Once we know God, we can know how we would like to be treated and we can ask God to help us treat others in the same way!
Allow God to help you give to others what you expect to have returned to you!
Thank You for showing me Your love, compassion, and respect. Help me to show others the same. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
