Luke 6: 31
”Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
In a way, this probably has been a “life verse” for me, without my realizing it. My mom often reminded us of the “golden rule”. At some point this became automatic for me. True, it is easy for me to get carried off track and forget. But this is such an excellent tool to use in life. It has become a habit for me to imagine myself on the receiving end of something I am saying or doing. It gives a very different view of how my actions impact others. It is not perfect, because we all see the world in our own unique way. We can never 100% know or understand another’s perspective. But it is a very good start. These words are words I try to live by.
Heavenly Father, help me to always treat others with the same respect and dignity I would like for myself. Remind me when I do not, with a nudge from your Holy Spirit. Amen
