As I Have Treated You

Often times I tell my children “Treat you brother the way you want to be treated.”  I have even thought that about my own actions, striving to treat others how I would want to be treated.  But I am not sure if that is enough.  Oh, I think it’s a pretty good thought and it is something that really makes you consider your own actions. But I wonder if the Creator is actually looking for more.

32 “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. 35 But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. 36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

37 Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. 38 Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”   Luke 6

It seems he is saying “Treat others that way I have treated you!”.

So maybe I should now say to them “Treat your brother the way God has treated you ?”
