DO UNTO OTHERS
Treat others the same way you want them to treat you. Luke 6:31 NASB
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if individuals, communities, states, and nations lived in accordance with the teachings of Jesus? There would be no wars between nations for no one wants to see their young men/women killed. There would be no bickering over “States Rights”. There would be no demeaning rivalry between neighboring towns. There would be no vicious tackles in football or elbows to the face under the basketball net.
God has been known by several names. The Jews refer to Him as Yahweh. He is also named the One, the Creator of all that exists. Muslims refer to God as Allah. Most importantly, the best name for God is LOVE. If we truly lived the “Golden Rule” we would live only in love. We would live in love for all of God’s creation. Yes, we would use all that God has provided, but would not misuse anything.
Hopefully before we return to the Spirit world from whence we came, and the return of Gods Son Jesus, all of us will learn to love one another and truly practice that love. Hopefully, God’s desires will be done here on earth just as it is in God’s Heaven.
Father, help me to actually live your “Golden Rule” and not just to mouth those wonderful words. Amen
