Matthew 7:12 Daily Devotional
Jesus is summing up all of the Jewish scriptures with one statement: treat others like you want to be treated. This is a big statement, but it’s a true statement.
To apply this verse, think first about how you would want to be treated. If you want to be treated with respect, treat others with respect. If you want to be encouraged, then encourage others. Sometimes the things we think we need most are really the things we need to be doing.
Help me to treat others well. Give me your patience and kindness as I interact with people I may not get along with. Help me to encourage others and treat them with respect as I follow your example in Jesus. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
