Jesus exhorted His followers to a truly revolutionary way of living. His standard for life didn’t consist of merely telling people what not to do. Instead, He exhorted God’s people to offer loving service to others. He called people back to the heart of the Old Testament message with one comprehensive command: “In everything, do to others what you would have them do to you.” How will you proactively take loving action for the benefit of those around you today?
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
Prayer: Jesus, in a world frequently characterized by “things not to do,” teach me to live and lead by proactively taking steps to serve others. You did this time and again, so I know You can show me how to do it, also. Thank You for proactively loving, serving, forgiving, and empowering us so that we can lead from the heart like You, amen.
