The Golden Rule

July 23, 2012

Jesus said, "In everything

do to others as you

would have them do to you;

for this is the law and the prophets."

-Matthew 7:12

The Golden rule. In today's verse Jesus says it summarizes the entire Hebrew Bible.

Put some thought around it. What do you want people to do for you? You want them to listen to you when you need to talk. Befriend you. Reach out to you when you need a touch. Support you when you're burdened. Pray for you. Talk with you. Encourage you. Confront you lovingly when necessary. Give something special to you. Care about you. Share with you. Respect you. Allow you to be you. Accept the way you are. Maintain healthy limits with you. Love you.

Think about the people in your life. Is anyone doing these things for you? Who? Now think through these activities again. Which of them have you been doing for others? How many people are you relating to in this way? Ask God to help you put the Golden Rule to work in your life today.
