The Golden Rule of Discipleship

Some people spend their whole lives waiting for some big revelation from the sky that will unveil the big amazing plan for their life. They miss it and die.

Some people carry a victim mentality over a disappointment that took place years ago. They miss it and their spirit died in the unfairness of it all.

Some people march out with justice placards determined to change their world or at least their friends. They miss it and their friends die away.

What marks out the disciple of Jesus? It is this …

“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 v 12)

So … a concluding remark and at the end of the remark revealing that this is the summary of the Old Testament.

In the context of the Father giving them good gifts, be like Him.

The Golden Rule because it is akin to Love God love your neighbour.

Can you imagine if in the world of politics, education, media and the Church the Golden Rule was adopted?

What kind of world would we live in?

Think of the way you would like to be treated and then go and do that to other people, every person, not just the ones you like.

That’s the golden rule for being a disciple.
