Reflect Compassion

One rule is all you need.

(Listen to my song “I Stand in the Light” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Matthew 7:12

“Do to others whatever you would have them do to you. This is the law and the prophets.”


This, of course, is known as “The Golden Rule.”

In today’s scripture verse, Jesus stated the rule’s utmost importance in the way of life that he was proposing.

It is touted as such by many of the world’s religions.

So why does it seem so little practiced?

It states the truth that whatever you do to another…it is as though you are doing it to yourself.

That’s because the Source of Life, the Christ, is present in everyone.

We are all part of One body.

God’s light shines on all and in all.

Take some time to dwell on this.
