The not-so-Golden Rule

“Treat others the way you want to be treated.” This is the wisdom we learn as kids, and it’s the wisdom of the Bible. Why do something to others if you wouldn’t want the same treatment? It’s a basic building block of morality.

And yet, it’s not without its quarks. As I share in this video, sometimes, when we take the passage too literally, we run the risk of missing the point. Sometimes it might be helpful to remember that not everyone wants to be treat the same way, and that true Christian humility means treating others the way they want to be treated.
