Jesus Commandments

“The Golden Rule”
“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12)

By the majority of people, I believe this is the most remembered of all of Jesus’s commandments. Jesus said it was the “sum (total)” of all the Law. One might think that “empathy” would be required to obey this command, however, “self-awareness” is more important. If you do not know what you like and dislike, what to do and not to do, how could you respond to others, or this commandment? The things you love, you must want for others. If you like to receive, then give to others. If you need prayer, then pray for others. If you desire patience and peace, then respond to others in kind. If you want to be immensely loved, then love others with the same tenacious, intensity.

Remember always, that our Savior loved us with its greatest measurement – His life. He expects no less in return from His followers.
