Jesus' Sermon On The Mountainside: Fourth Command, The Golden Rule

4) The Lord Jesus’ fourth command was to reverence God the Father, Creator of us all by doing to others what we would have them do to us,
"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)
Just as you and I ask God for good gifts, and He gives them, so we must share those good things with others:
* Love,
* Forgiveness,
* Grace and
* Mercy

Who in your life are you having a relationship problem with?

After reviewing Jesus' four commands in Matthew 7:1-12, what on your own side is the Lord showing you, you might change?

1) Are you judgmental of them right now?

2) Are you talking about things that frustrate them, and draws the worst out in them?

3) Do you need discernment in what they need, and wisdom in how to help them?

4) Are you loving them the way you would like them to love you?
God’s wisdom comes with prayer
What have you given up praying about?

Would you be willing to start praying about it again, and this time not only ask God for what you need, but keenly search for His response, and keep knocking until He opens the door and gives you the good thing you need?
