The Golden Rule

This week I read that a burglary occurs every 14 seconds! Does that not just astound you? How would you like to make the world a better place? I think that we can improve on this statistic if we could see people practicing the golden rule.

Is there such a thing as the golden rule? Jesus made Himself very clear in Matthew chapter 7 that we are to treat others the same way that we would want to be treated.

MATTHEW 7:12 "Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets."

Sometimes, it is not so easy to follow this golden rule, especially when someone has hurt us or mistreated us or betrayed us. It is difficult to know exactly how we should treat others in times like this. When in doubt, knowing how to treat others is as simple as looking in the mirror. Ask that person you see in the mirror how they would like to be treated - and the answer you recieve will tell you exactly how to treat others.

"The mark of a Christian is that he will walk the second mile and turn the other cheek." - JOHN MAXWELL
