Verse of the Day 9-1-22

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7:12

Versions of the “Golden Rule” existed before Christ, in the rabbinic writings and even in Hinduism and Buddhism. All of them cast the rule as a negative command, such as Rabbi Hillel’s version, “What is hateful to yourself do not to someone else.” Jesus made it a positive command, enriching its meaning and underscoring that this one imperative aptly summarizes the whole gist of the ethical principles contained in the Law and the Prophets.

The Golden Rule completes and succinctly summarizes Old Testament teaching by placing emphasis on relationships rather than rules. Jewish rabbis and others taught this in a negative form…Do not do what you do not want done. Jesus called for positive relationships, not negative fear.
