“Do to others whatever you would have them do to you.” The only person who can even begin to satisfy the positive form of this rule is the person who has the love of Christ within his or her heart. That person will try to forgive as they would like to be forgiven, to help as they would wish to be helped, to praise as they would like to be praised, to understand as they would like to be understood. In every action of life, we are confronted with a choice. It is a choice between the hard way and the easy way. And there is never an easy way to greatness. It is the difference between the thoughtful and the thoughtless.
