Morning Line: Karma
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is a biblical statement. In fact, it is more than a biblical statement; it is a command from Jesus Christ Himself.
Luke 6:31 Jesus says, “And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.” Matthew 7:12 says, “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” Jesus ‘command comes in the context of the Sermon on the Mount, in a section where He discusses loving our enemies. The natural instinct is to hate our enemies and wish for hurt to come upon them. Jesus says that His children are to live differently. We are to love our enemies and one way to do this is to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
Matthew 5:43-45 (NRSVCE) “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous.
Christ’s command has been aptly named “the Golden Rule “and its wisdom is almost universally recognized.
The Golden Rule is positive in nature and by it, Christ commands positive action. Rather than simply tell us not to hate, Christ tells us to actively love others. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is one way to explain what loving others looks like in practice.
Live with expectation full of His spirit guiding you!
