Treat others the way you would have them treat you….

June 25, 2012

Proverbs 25:21-22 – If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you.

God’s form of retaliation is most effective and yet difficult to do. Paul quotes this proverb in Romans 12:19-21. In Matthew 5:44, Jesus encourages us to pray for those who hurt us. By returning good for evil, we are acknowledging God as the balancer of all accounts and trusting him to be the judge.

Now if we are to do this for our enemies, how much better should we treat family, friends, co-workers, relatives, associates and those around us. The rule is simple. Treat others the way you would have them trat you. Look out for one another, be compassionate and caring and reap the rewards in doing so. You cannot go wrong in treating others right not even your enemies.
