The Golden Rule.
I was helping my daughter with Algebra the other day and I was laughing because they have a golden rule for Algebra. Do you remember what it is?
"If you change the value on one side of the equation then you have to change the value on the other side of the equation by the same amount."
Okay, I am not meaning to hurt your head.
If only life was that simple. What was done on one side will be done on the other. However, God's golden rule follows something like this, on the other side do what you want to be done to you. In the balance of life this is a great way to life.
God wants us to treat others as we want to be treated because it show the world His Character. Plus this is a great way to live.
Although we aren't guarrented the out come to be equal for those on earth, you better be sure God is going to bless you far beyond whatever you do for others.
God has a way of blessing us for the little we do for Him or give to Him, we just have to obey what He says. God is an abundant blesser.
Do you remember the little boy with 5 loaves and 2 fish? That's what he had available to give to Jesus. What did God do with that? He feed 5,000 men plus women and children and had 12 baskets left over Matthew 14.
Do you remember what God said to the Prophet in Malachi about giving of our money to God?
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the LORD of hosts,
“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it Malachi 3:10
Look about what His abundance giving.
So there is a connection when we give to God. It seems to me, if we are just willing to give to God what's in our hands, He turns it into amazing things. I just think we neglect to give, neglect to try, neglect to take a chance. For some reason God does wait for us to move in these situations. No He doesn't have too but I believe He does because He wants your heart in it.
Live out the Golden Rule for you spiritual health sake. Even if you don't get the response from others, now that God is watching and will in Earth and in Eternal life Your God IS REWARDING You.
He's that Awesome. Just do it.
