Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets. – Matthew 7:12 (NLT)
This simple saying that Jesus said can be applied in so many aspects of life. If you ever are in doubt on what to do in a situation where your dealing with others, you can use this Bible verse. If someone is being mean to you, how would you want them to treat you, then do that. If you see someone in financial or simply need and you have the ability to make a difference, think what you’d like others to do to you in that situation and do that.
This also can be applied in being bold to others. It might not be popular to tell someone the truth, but in the long run, wouldn’t you rather have someone tell you the truth? If you’re heading down a destructive path, wouldn’t you like someone to have had the guts to possibly stand up to ridicule and say, “hey I know this is popular and everyone else is doing it, but this is hurting you and it’s not God’s best”.
Think of ways you could apply this Bible verse in your life and pray that God would show you how you can treat others how you’d want to be treated.
