The golden rule // 28-06-23

“Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.” Matthew‬ ‭7‬:‭12‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This verse is entitled, ‘The golden rule!’ The bottom line principle for living that makes the biggest difference! This is how The Message paraphrases it, “Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behaviour: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them.” Matthew‬ ‭7‬:‭12‬ ‭MSG‬
Grab the initiative! Rather than waiting for someone to do what I want them to, I’m going to go do it first for them, I don’t have to wait for a blessing I can be that blessing today and in the process find that I am blessed. Lord, help me to shine today as I follow Your golden rule. Amen 👆🏼🙏🏼☀️
