April 9: Wisdom= Do Unto Others

“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act.  Do not say to your neighbor, ‘Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you’— when you already have it with you.”  Proverbs 3:27-28

What does it mean to do good to someone else?  What kinds of good things might we do for others?  There’s really a simple answer to the question.  Do to others what you would want them to do to you.  The Golden Rule, taught by Jesus, places us in the position of doing to others the same that we would want done to us.

In any situation, think about how you would want to be treated, and do that for the person you’re with.  If you want to be respected, respect others.  If you would want to be gifted, be generous.  If you would want to be spoken well of, speak well of others.

If the Proverb leaves you wondering what you should do, just look inside, and treat others how you would want to be treated.  You’ll find yourself doing good all the time.
