The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule," In everything do to others as you would have them do to you;" (Matt 7:12 (to;) NRSV), reminds us daily that it's not enough to keep from hurting our friends, neighbors, and even enemies. In every situation, we are to love as God loves, with compassion and forgiveness.
