The Journey – The Golden Rule

“One of my favorite hymns recorded in my album inspired me to center my thought on The Golden Rule. In this episode, I share my experiences of learning to apply Christ’s teaching daily. I conclude my message by singing the song titled “A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief,” by James Montgomery and George Coles.

“A poor wayfaring Man of grief

Hath often crossed me on my way,
Who sued so humbly for relief
That I could never answer, nay.
I had not power to ask his name,
Whereto he went, or whence he came;
Yet there was something in his eye
That won my love; I knew not why.”

A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief

As each new day starts for me, I have been given an opportunity to choose how I spend my time and how I treat others that day.

There are days when I have my schedule and plans; I think I will do all, yet I discover that some days my plans are not in line with God’s plan. Then, I know I need to trust Him and let Him guide me to accept His will. When things happen differently, I have learned to relinquish control and frustrations in this faith journey.

I have been given much, and when an opportunity manifests to give my time or substance to others, it brings contentment, joy, and peace. I witnessed that on so many occasions.

God gives, and He takes away; this is the truth since the beginning of the world. I am a traveler on this earth, living among different people and learning to understand that we all want to be loved and accepted. That we all depend on God’s wisdom and His creation.

“Do to others as you would them do to you” is the Golden Rule”

The Golden Rule by James Wells

In your daily round of duties,
As you make your way through life;
As you gaze upon its beauties,
And you look upon its strife,
There’s a rule of conduct given,
Which I will commend to you:
Always do unto another
What you’d have him do to you.

If, perchance, along life’s highways,
You should meet a man that’s down,
Or you meet him on the byways,
Where he meets with many a frown,
Won’t you try to help him, brother,
‘Ere he passes from your view?
Won’t you do unto another
What you’d have him do to you?

Once upon a time, the Saviour
Came into this world of sin,
Came into this world to suffer,
Precious souls that He might win.
And He gave to us a precept
Did this Saviour, kind and true:
Always do unto another
What you’d have him do to you.

“Blessed Are the Peacemakers” by Russel M. Nelson, he shares beautiful principles of genuine care for others. He said

“Jesus taught the Golden Rule: “All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.” This principle is found in nearly every major religion. Others, such as Confucius and Aristotle, have also taught it. After all, the gospel did not begin with the birth of the Babe in Bethlehem. It is everlasting. It was proclaimed in the beginning to Adam and Eve. Portions of the gospel have been preserved in many cultures. Even heathen mythologies have been enriched by fragments of truth from earlier dispensations.

Wherever it is found and however it is expressed, the Golden Rule encompasses the moral code of the kingdom of God. It forbids interference by one with the rights of another. It is equally binding upon nations, associations, and individuals. With compassion and forbearance, it replaces the retaliatory reactions of “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” If we were to stay on that old and unproductive path, we would be but blind and toothless.” “This concept of treating others as one would like to be treated is easy to understand.”

“We have the responsibility to look at our friends, associates, and neighbors…not as they are but rather as they can become.”
