The disciples listen.
The crowd listens.
Luke 6 is FILLED with lessons.
Many of them are hard lessons.
Lessons that can only really sink in and take effect with the power of the Holy Spirit.
The one I am pondering this morning, is one that we have all heard.
Since I was very young, I have been learning this lesson.
I can't remember a time when I didn't know these words.
It may be the first verse I ever memorized.
God has whispered it to my heart over and over again.
And yet, to often, I still fail to follow the teaching.
I do not treat others the way I would want to be treated if I were in their place.
It sounds so simple,
just a short phrase,
but a long lesson to learn.
Lord, teach me to think before I respond.
Please help me to treat others the way I would want to be treated.
