Golden Rule

Filed under: Some Famous | Some Not So Famous — pilgrimskeyboard @ 8:04 pm

Matthew 7:12 … whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them …

John MacArthur
The golden rule instructs us as to how we are to love other people … How we treat others is not to be determined by how we expect them to treat us or by how we think they should treat us, but by how we want them to treat us. Herein is the heart of the principle, an aspect of the general truth that is not found in similar expressions in other religions and philosophies.

—– [The MacArthur New Testament Commentary: Matthew 1-7, Chicago: Moody Press, 1985, p. 446] —–
