Matthew 7:12

1 September, 2022

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

Eternal God of Righteousness and Truth, we praise your Holy Name along with the heavenly and earthly minstrels raising their voices in praise of your glory. Lord, you have manifested abundantly the perfection we need to attain for our eternal salvation, by true obedience, repentance and following of the precepts and commandments in the Holy Bible. But your greatest command was taught by our Savior Jesus Christ, who depicted through his own life that your foremost commandment is to love one another, in humility, service, justice and truth, without any expectation.

Every man should deal justly with his neighbor, in giving him what is his own, neither taking nor withholding from him. If our fellowman stands in need of our charitable help, we should impart the help required in exact justice which we would expect, if the roles were reversed. Do the same unto them, as you would want done to you. This golden rule taught by our Messiah blocks out all evil.

Father, you have given us the counsel and companionship of the Holy Spirit who exhorts us to walk in peace, truth and love, eliminating all that is unholy and not of the Lord, growing in love, faith and grace, adopting the ways of Jesus in our everyday lives. Our Christian life should be the presence of that which is good for the benefit of others and to the glory of God. Assist us to walk in spirit and truth and to love as Christ loved us, so that our life reflects Christ’s, we ask this in his Holy Name. Amen.
