Jesus clearly, concisely and simply summed up the essence of following Him



 If you want to SUM UP your walk with Jesus, here’s a great way to think about it..


Matthew 7:12

New International Version (NIV)

12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

At the very least, that surely means…

Treating other people’s spouse the way you want them to treat your spouse…

Treating other people’s children the way you want them to treat your children…

Treating other people’s employees the way you want them to treat your employees…

Treating pastors and church people from other faith traditions the way you want people from those different denominations to treat your pastor and members of your congregation…


So, if you are ever unsure of the concept — such as, say, when you are in a long line with a slow checker at a big box store — ask yourself, “How would I want people to treat me if I were that checker?”  

Now, today who do you need to treat the way you want to be treated?  Is the Lord bringing someone to mind?
