The Golden Rule

 

Matthew 7:12

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

What of Today’s Verse…

The Golden Rule – golden because it’s genuine, lasting, and valuable. Imagine how different our world would be if we practiced this principle – not just in our “church life” but in our daily life with our family, with our co-workers and employer, with the people we manage, with the folks on the freeway and in the neighbourhoods where we drive, toward the waiters and waitresses who serve us. What a wonderfully different world it would be if the Golden Rule were to be practiced. I think I’ll start changing my world with it today! How about you?

Let Us Pray:

Generous Father, you have blessed me with so many rich and wonderful gifts. I can never repay you. One thing I want you to know, dear Father, is that I especially appreciate the way you have treated me with grace and not with justice or judgment. Give me the power to do the same with the people my life touches this week. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Words Of Wisdom

Open And Receptive

I am open and receptive to divine inspiration.

I may not always be conscious of the ongoing monologue taking place in my mind. At times my thoughts may take an about turn and become lost in examination of the past or worry about the future.

There is a better way: My practice of daily meditation lays the foundation for greater awareness at all times. This awareness helps me turn away from any repetitive, negative thoughts. As I become open and receptive to divine inspiration, I take control of my own inner world of thoughts.

If there is a need that comes to mind, I become quiet and still–aware of and attentive to God’s guiding presence within me. Fully present in the moment, I pose a question or release any burden. God is within me. I am open and receptive as I listen to and follow through on divine inspiration.

All my words that I shall speak to you receive in your heart.”–Ezekiel 3:10
