more gold to come!

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

The Olympics are over, but there is still gold available.

It's easy doing what's right if the ones around you do too. When people are making good, pleasing 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 or harsh decisions, stomping on the golden rule is a natural human reaction. It's hard to do right when others, in our opinion, act selfishly, dishonestly, arrogantly or negatively. Why should we bother, when another is 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 discover 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 deeper in trying times.  You deserve to be covered in His Peace.

Go for the gold! And feel like the winner you are. 

we are loved and chosen by God,
