The Golden Rule
The Golden Rule is as applicable today as it was when God gave it to us in his word: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." The Golden Rule is God's rule. Today spread a heaping helping of kindness wherever you go. Treat others that God places in your path with the same respect and kindness that you would like to receive from them. Make forgiveness a cornerstone of your dealings with others; be generous with your time and your possessions. When you do, you'll discover that the more kindness you give away to others, the more you'll receive in return. Give a smile to the grocery clerk, to the bank teller, to the bus driver, to the receptionist---to whomever you might run into at any given moment. See what a smile might do to change the person's whole outlook on their day. You can become a shining example to all you meet. By the way, people are watching you, and they are learning from you. What is your attitude teaching others as you go into your normal day today?
"Love covers a multitude of sins." (I Peter 4:8) "Therefore, if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him water; for in doing so, you shall heap coals of kindness on his head. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." (Romans 12:20-21)
God wants us to change our attitudes, and our attitudes then can possibly change others!
