Loved, respected, patience1, gentleness, or maybe even honestly! These are a few of the ways I would like to be treated. No where in the bible does it say, "hey treat people like this, and they'll treat you the same." Matthew 7:12 says... So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets... The bible tells us to treat people in every way possible, the way we would like to be treated. Sometimes I struggle being that person, because honestly I hope they would treat me the same. Chances are, they may or they may not treat you the way you want to be treated, but as ambassadors for Jesus, we are called to treat them how we want to be treated. Regardless of the outcome.
Father God, thank you for reminding me how to treat others. I know there are times I expect to be treated the same by them, but your mercy on me is more than rewarding. I pray for the strength and endurance to be able the treat others exactly how I would want to be treated. In Jesus' precious name I pray, Amen!
