September 23, 2017: SOAP #2851: Daniel 11-12; Luke 6

Scripture:  Luke (NIV) 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Observation:   How simple is the wisdom of Jesus.   It is easy to understand.   It has universal application.   Everyone knows how they like to be treated, so they know how they should treat others.    It is a basic rule that should be a part of everyone's life.

Application:   It is not enough to know about this Golden Rule.   It is not enough to have it on a plaque hanging on a wall in my house.   It is not enough to know that it is verse 31 of Luke chapter 6.   It is not enough to have it as a permanent part of my memory.   This must be an active part of my daily life choices.   People should be able to see how I like to be treated by watching how I treat others.

Prayer:     Holy Spirit, show me each day how I can be a blessing to others.   In big ways, and in small ways, make me a blessing to those around me. Amen
