“Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them. Add up God’s Law and Prophets and this is what you get.”
Would you like more respect, more understanding, more love and patience coming from others? Show it to them, and you’ll find it coming right back. It won’t necessarily come back from the very person you show it to, but it will come back to you from life’s blessings at large, and often in unexpected ways. Genuine giving from the heart has its rightful reward.
