The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule

Pastor Mike shares the message "The Golden Rule"

Lots of people know the Golden Rule is do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Do you treat people the way you want to be treated? Do we pick and choose the people we want to be nice to? Do you treat people regardless of the way they treat you? The Bible says in:
Luke 6:31New King James Version (NKJV)
“And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.”
We are commanded to love everyone. That’s how JESUS lived on earth, and if we are Christians, we gotta be like HIM. How will the world know that we are Christians?
Matthew 5:43-44
43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
JESUS didn’t say to treat people right “if only” they do something for you first. HE commanded us to love people. PERIOD. Don’t do the golden rule by your standards, do it by GOD’S standards.
The greatest way to give the Love of JESUS to others is by not expecting anything in return. Treat people right even when they don’t respond that way to you.
One way to treat people is to show the Love of JESUS is by sacrificing your own feelings for someone else’s feelings.
When people do you wrong we shouldn’t do them wrong. We shouldn’t react the way they do to us. Maybe that person is going through some stuff in their lives. M
