Good morning people who follow the example of Jesus
Matthew 7:12 (NIV) So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
‘In everything, treat people how you want to be treated’…“Surely this can’t mean in ‘everything’?”
Maybe Jesus meant what He said.
Too often we place ‘exception clauses’ on what Jesus said. It’s always to our detriment – it may not be seen immediately, but it will not end well.
Jesus means what He says. I want you to think about this today. Jesus does not waste words, nor does He ask us to do the divinely impossible. Yes, it may be humanly impossible (or just downright difficult!), but Jesus’ statements to us are never divinely impossible – we can always do everything He tells us to do.
“Will you treat people today how Jesus treats people and how you would like to be treated?”
