Do to you, so to them

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Matt. 7:12

All things, that I would have men do to me, I am to do to them and for them. So I am to treat others as I would want to be treated. That means love them, treat them with fairness, speak truth to them. Its something that seems to be hard to do at times, and takes a bit for me to do. If I love God with all my heart, mind, soul and strength, then I am not the one who is attempting to treat others the way I want to be treated. The love of God is in me and it is moving me, to do and treat and act toward others the way I would have it. I love myself, because He loves me, and I know that God loves others too. This verse says all things, which means to me, that no matter what another does to me, I am to treat him or her the way I would want to be treated. Maybe I won’t see the results, but I will be obedient, and following the leading of the Holy Spirit which fills my heart with love and compassion for them.
