Today’s Topic: How to Treat One Another
Treating others the way we’d like to be treated is indispensable in building strong relationships.
Scripture: Matthew 22:36-40
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
In Touch Daily Devotional – Dr. Charles Stanley 22nd May 2023
In today’s passage, someone asks what the greatest commandment is. Jesus replies, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” He doesn’t stop there but includes a second one: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Strong, loving connections are based on treating others the way we want to be treated. As you think about your friends, family, and coworkers, consider the following characteristics of a strong relationship:
• Enjoyment and satisfaction
• Prayer support
• Respect and honor
• Protection from emotional, physical, or spiritual harm.
Most of us would have to admit that we don’t always exhibit these characteristics, but wouldn’t we all want them displayed toward us? Ask the Lord to give you the patience and wisdom to mend or strengthen your relationships.
Bible in One Year: 2 Chronicles 35-36
