Do To Others As You Would Have Them Do To You
In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the Prophets. (Matthew 7:12)
When we interact with others we want them to treat us with empathy, kindness, fairness, and compassion. We don't want them to bully us, mock, us or be unkind to us.
Jesus is commanding us to shift the focus off ourselves and put it on others.
Ask yourself, how would you like others to treat you. Then ask yourself how you could do treat others this way.
For example, if you want people to be kind to you, ask yourself how can you be kind to others? Or, how can you be kind and loving to others?
Or, if you want people to be compassionate to you, ask yourself how can you have compassion on others? Now, go and do those things to others. ~ Jeff M Newman
