One rule that many of us probably learned as children was, "Treat others the way you want to be treated." This "Golden Rule" may have guided many interactions throughout childhood. As we grow older, the rule shouldn't be forgotten. Our actions should be guided by kindness and respect for ourselves and for others!
When considering our reactions to others, our actions can be rooted in the love from God that we have experienced. We can think about how we are treated by God and then consider how our actions can reflect this in our treatment of others. We can know love and show love. Even as adults, we can remember to treat others the way we want to be treated by showing God's love and compassion in our actions and reactions!
Treat others with the respect and love learned from God!
Thank You for showing me and teaching me love and respect. Help me to treat others as I want to be treated as a reflection of Your love. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
