“In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you,
for this is the Law and the Prophets." Matthew 7:12
Daily Express: Treating others the way that we wish to be treated,
is a primary spiritual foundation.
"And the king will answer them, "Truly I tell you, just as you did it to
one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
There are key spiritual foundations that should be a part of every life.
One of the spiritual foundations that I strongly recommend is -
The Golden Rule.
The Golden rule is the secret to a good life. A life with no apologies needed.
The Golden rule leads to a life where everyone wants to be near you.
The Golden rule leads to a life where you enjoy being you.
The Golden Rule reminds you to treat others as you yourself want to be
treated. Today, you are a loving, giving spiritual being. You live the
Golden Rule by giving to your family, friends, and community the same kind
of love and understanding that you want to receive from them. You go
through this day appreciating others and they, in turn, will appreciate you.
You give love and kindness to your family and friends, which is the source
of reassurance that they can turn to you for support and understanding in
You give your time and creativity to your church, and community around you.
Wherever you are needed, you are there to offer an encouraging word or a helping
The Spirit of God is with you and within you. You are never alone in
practicing the Golden Rule, for God uses you as a conduit of the Divine
God speaks to you in gentle ways; for instance, when the wind touches your
face, you are reminded of God's presence in your life. Many times, God
will inspire you to do something for someone else, and you will gladly do

The goodness of God is made alive in you as you consent to it, and you
will cast a broad positive shadow everywhere you go.

Here is a spiritual idea to consider. If God is love, then the true meaning
of the Sabbath is to spend an entire day loving.

or about others—is to cleanse the soul with a spiritual mental housecleaning.
When you give love, you receive love
I have seen people practice this once a week exercise, and have it
revolutionize their lives, as well as their relationships.
Just as we could not imagine not ever taking a bath, we will soon savor
this spiritual cleansing exercise, missing it if we skip this exercise.
To spend an entire day loving is one of the highest forms of spirituality.
It does not question or judge; it simply loves. What we discover is the
spiritual law that we cannot give it away; it comes back multiplied in
compound many times over.
Dear God, I consent to living my life by the Golden rule.
I consent to giving love to everyone in worship of You.
I consent to treat others the way that I want to be treated.
In Jesus Christ's name… Amen
The footprint that I leave behind is one of love and understanding for all.
