Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 NIV
The Golden Rule says to treat others as we would like to be treated. Our verse today tells us how to treat others. We should be kind and caring for others. Yes, they can hurt us sometimes, maybe not intentionally, or maybe on purpose. We don’t know the pain they are going through that causes people to lash out at others. They are often hurting. Christ forgave those that nailed Him to the cross. May we follow Christ’s example and forgive others and be kind to them even when we don’t want to.
So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. Matthew 7:12 NIV
