Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Some things don't need a lot of explaining, just a lot more implementing in our lives. I invite you to join me: Let's commit to living the Golden Rule in whatever situation we find ourselves with other people!

Video Commentary...

We've included Phil's ToGather video from four years ago as an added blessing to our verse today:

My Prayer...

Loving God, Almighty Father, forgive me for my selfishness that all too often rears its ugly head. You have blessed me so richly and graciously through Jesus. Please move me by your Spirit to be as generous, loving, forgiving, and kind with others as I want them to be with me. Help me as I seek to use the principles of Jesus' Golden Rule in whatever circumstances I find in my relationships with others. I want to be as loving and gracious with others as the Lord Jesus has been to me and treat them as I long to be treated. In Jesus' name, I ask to live this truth of Jesus in my daily life. Amen.
