the golden rule

Mark 12:30-31

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.

The second is this: "Love your neighbor as yourself." There is no commandment greater than these.”

I think some days it’s easy to love God but to love the people that have it out for you is different. They say this is the golden rule, I just haven’t figured out what is golden about it. Maybe if I could just quit thinking about what the world has done to me then it would make it easier to love people around me, whether they were ever nice to me or not. If you want to be treated nicely, treat someone else nicely; treat someone else nicely because of the grace you have been given. So that regardless of how you feel in any given situation, you can offer grace like the grace God extends to you daily. Jesus gave up His life and they were not nice to Him, and yet He said not to hold it against them. Maybe one day I will get there but until I do I will keep trying to love people the way God does.
