The bible teaches us to do unto others as we would have them do unto us. How many of us actually think about this? For many of us the only time we do think on this directive from God is when someone has mistreated us. When we really should think of this daily. We should think of this in how we talk to people, how we talk about others when they are not in our presence and in how we treat others at all times.
We must not be self-centered when it comes to how we treat people. We must be kind and walk in love. We should not say things that can bring others down or speak death over their situation. We must speak positively and be encouraging and send up prayers for others. We must not be jealous or undermine other’s dreams, hopes and aspirations.
Be a light unto others by not being of this world but following the directives put before us by God. Be encouraging and uplifting to others and to yourself. Start today by treating others as you would have them treat you in every situation.
