The Golden Rule

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. – Matthew 7:12

In the post “Loving Our Neighbor”, some ideas were discussed and the thought came out that if these ideas were applied in each person’s life, there would be no need for laws because no commandment would ever be broken.

For most of us the concept is easily understood but the application of it is extremely difficult. The key is to use the lessons from the Bible and follow the “Golden Rule” by letting love from the Father overflow from our heart to those we meet.*

In many parts of society, hate has taken over but the song Love Take Me Over by Steven Curtis Chapman offers an idea to set things right.

  1. Well said. “For most of us the concept is easily understood but the application of it is extremely difficult.” I guess that is why if just has to a minute by minute, day by day focus.

    Be blessed. God is with you.
