Message of the Day: The Golden Rule in Positive Form!
“Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the law and the prophets.” (Matthew 7:12, NKJV)
The Golden Rule is found in negative form in rabbinic Judaism and also in Hinduism, Buddhism and Confucianism. It occurred in various forms in Greek and Roman ethical teaching. Jesus stated it in positive form.
The general meaning of it is, “Guided by justice and mercy, do unto men as you would have them to do to you, were your circumstances and theirs reversed.” This is the sum of all that is written in the Old Testament.
Love for God is the key in keeping this precept!
