Golden Rule

Matthew 7:12, “So then whatever you desire that others would do to and for you, even so do you also to and for them, for this is (sums up) the Law and the prophets.”

We have heard this golden rule so many times, yet that does not make it any easier to follow.  If you think it is easy, I am not sure you have ever really tried it.  It is the law of love.

Try honestly say 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 using the personal pronoun “I” as representing one who loves…..

I suffer long and am kind; I do not envy; I do not parade myself, am not puffed up; I do not behave rudely, I do not seek my own, I am not provoked, think no evil; I do not rejoice in iniquity or worldliness, but rejoice in the truth; I bear all things, believe all things, hope all things, endure all things. Living in His Love, I never fail.

Quietly think on that!
