“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets” (Matt. 7:12).
It’s been a very busy week, and today is a very busy day. Therefore, I’m going to keep this week’s devotional thought short and sweet. LET’S START TREATING EACH OTHER BETTER!
Short enough but maybe not so sweet. Sorry. I guess the sweetness is missing because I’ve been angered more than once this week by experiencing both personally and vicariously the selfishness and meanness of people who are out for themselves with little or no regard for the well-being of the people around them. Some of these run-ins have been in business settings where the offending individuals are supposed to be providing service and care for others. (By the way, don’t go into the caregiving work of medicine if you don’t care! I’m just saying.) And other experiences have been on more personal, relational levels. Disappointing.
Regardless of the situation, it all boils down to the simple and profound truth we have learned since we were children: TREAT OTHER PEOPLE AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE TREATED!
That is all.
