St. Matthew 7:12

12. “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” (KJV)

12. “In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (NASB)

This verse is much quoted amongst Christians and non-Christians alike, but do we really understand what our Lord is saying to us in the verse, and if so, do our actions line up with our understanding?

I believe that Jesus wants us to consider others with the same thoughtfulness, kindness, generosity, forgiveness, love and understanding that we want others to show toward us. If we do that not only will we change the life of others for the better, but our own lives will be changed as well.

Dr. J. M. Wooten
