Jesus said, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
He didn’t say: do to others what they did to you.
We are supposed to be the light, a reflection of Christ.
Be different. Be the light in a dark world.
New Living Translation
The Golden Rule
12 “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.
Consider that the person who so annoys you or angers you is the spouse, child, parent, or relation of someone who is fervently praying for their salvation.
What if the glimpse of Jesus this person needs is you?
Now think about the spouse, child, parent, relation YOU are praying for. Don’t you want Christians in their sphere of influence to show them love, mercy and truth?
Just something to think about. It helps keep judgement at bay and fear of the Lord (as in a healthy respect for) in the forefront of your thoughts.
Have a blessed day. ❤
