“Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.” -Luke 6:30-31
So when Jesus is then asked how to inherit eternal life, he says love your neighbor as yourself. Instead of saying don’t do to others what you wouldn’t want them to do, he says what? Do! Do unto others what you’d have them do unto you. Love one another. Reach out to one another. Reach to others. Don’t just segregate, go to others. Reach out to other people; people need you. Don’t isolate yourself, you need to go to others, and that is Christian love.
PRAYER: Thank you, Lord, for the guidelines you’ve given us. Help us to treat others the way we want to be treated — with love.
REFLECTION: How can you reach out to others today?
