be the gold

Jesus said...
"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

It's easy doing what's right if the ones around you do too. When people are making wonderful, kind decisions, we feel energized.  It's easy to be kinder, work harder and longer, and even go beyond expectations.

But when we stumble on difficult people, tossing the golden rule is a natural reaction. It's hard to do right when others act selfishly, dishonestly, arrogantly or negatively. Why should we bother to do right, when some are so wrong?  Because God says so. It's the better choice not so much for the offender, but for you.

When we face unfair people and decisions, we can find greater peace by choosing the higher road and treating them right... no matter what.  Being less of what God has created us to be builds frustration, inner conflict and anger.

Dig deep in trying time, and be the gold in the golden rule.  You deserve to be covered in His Peace.

have a true-filled day!
