The Golden Rule is Still Relevant

Common sense and common courtesy are in short supply. People seem to do whatever feels okay to them without thinking how their actions affect anyone else. I believe the "Golden Rule" needs to be taught and used in our daily lives. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." The Golden Rule comes from the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus said, "All things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them." Luke 6:31

The second part which is relevant in our present age is Don't repay evil for evil. Don't retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it. 1 Peter 3:9

What kind of people do this? People who belong to the Kingdom of God are probably the only ones who do. Make sure you are one of these for goodness sake!
