Daily Word - Golden Rule

Dale Cresap's picture

You are familiar with the Golden Rule stated as ‘do unto others as you would have them to do unto you’. It isn’t limited to Christianity; nearly every faith tradition in the world makes the same affirmation. Do you know the reason for following the Golden Rule? Do you assume that in doing this for others you build up an account of favor and goodwill that you can draw on when needed? Yet you have no guarantee that others will do unto you as you would have them do. You don’t need the assurance that others will follow the Golden Rule if you do. You can do it because you are the children of your Father in heaven.
