Good Words for Today: February 12

“Treat people the same way you want them to treat you” (Matthew 7:12). We call this the Golden Rule because it reveals the heart of Jesus. We like to say, “You go first, and I’ll treat you the way you treat me.” Jesus said, “Don’t wait for the other person. You make the first move.” But what if they don’t respond well? That doesn’t matter. We’re not in charge of how people respond to us. Make the first move and let the Lord take care of the results.
