"In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets. " Matthew 7 : 12
Prayer

This is commonly known as the Golden Rule. In many religions it is stated negatively, ‘Don’t do to others what you would not want done to you.’ By stating it positively, Jesus made it more significant: it is not very hard to refrain from harming others; it is much more difficult to take the initiative in doing something good for them. The Golden Rule as Jesus formulated it is the foundation of active goodness and mercy – the kind of love God shows to us every day. Think of a good and merciful action you can take today.

Prayer

Lord, help me to be generous and loving towards those whose lives I touch each day. Amen
