Mat 7:12 – What did you do for them?

Stop and think for a moment, what did you do for someone else yesterday? Who did you help? Who did you do a kind deed for or send an encouraging message to? Or, was everything you did for your own benefit or your own enjoyment and enrichment? We live in a world filled with anger, hatred, greed, depression, jealousy, and pride, and we wonder why. In James 3:16 we read “For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.” The secret to a happy and fulfilling life is given by Jesus when he summarizes all the laws and instructions in the Bible – “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:12) When we show kindness, love, peace, compassion, forgiveness, and generosity to others, these are the same gifts that will come flooding back to us. Today fill another person’s life with what you’d love to experience in your life and watch the miracles happen. Open Bible –,
