God Thoughts No. Fifty Two

“Always treat others as you would like them to treat you; 
this sums up the teachings of the Law and the Prophets.” 
Matthew 7:12

If you desire to be shown kindness; be kind.
If you desire friendship; be a friend.
If you desire to be heard; listen to others.
If you desire respect; show respect.
If you desire wealth; be generous.
If you desire wisdom; follow the leading of Holy Spirit.
If you desire to know God better; study the person of Jesus.

It may sound simplistic, but it is what Jesus said to do.

Instead, we make things more difficult by placing conditions on everything.
Human philosophy says, “I’ll scratch your back if you scratch mine.”
Jesus says, “If you want your back scratched, scratch someone else’s first.”

It really is that simple.
