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 this age, of the “all about me,” a person can get lost in the shuffle within
the selfish masses. You may have noticed that there are an awful lot of people
primarily concerned about their own best interests. If you’re not careful, you
could end up just like them. So, whatever happened to the golden rule? Did it
change? Is it lost? Or is it perceived an archaic notion, no longer worthy of
our consideration? “Do to others what you would have them do to you…” Not
exactly a marketing slogan, is it? The consumer age has permeated our minds,
convincing us that we deserve a break, we should have it our way, or we deserve
the very best. Jesus said He “did not come to be served, but to serve”. The
heart of His followers should be no different. No, the golden rule has not
changed. God is still God. Jesus is still Lord and Savior. His love is
unending--His truth, unchanging. And because the golden rule came out from the
mouth of Jesus--it will always remain still golden.
