The Golden Rule states “In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you.”
It doesn’t say when its convenient or when it suits. It doesn’t say to some of our friends or people we get on well with.
It says in everything.
On Facebook, by email, by txt, behind their back, and face to face.
Whether they live in our country or another, and believe what we believe or have faith in different things.
Friends, enemies and strangers.
Poor, rich and in between.
Regardless of how they have treated you. Treat them the way you would want them to treat you.
If we would want to be helped in hard times, help people whenever you can.
If you want people to stop talking harshly to you, stop being harsh.
If you want to be encouraged, be an encourager.
If you want to be heard, listen.
The golden rule requires personal choices by everyone, every time we interact with another human being. How much different would society be if we all chose to live this way?
