The Golden Rule

Every religion has a golden rule.

Treat others as you want to be treated.

How marvelous are those words!

They show the depths of love and compassion.

So, what should you do if your neighbor offends you?

Some may say like the bible verse “an eye for an eye.”

But this will only make the whole world blind.

Instead, it’s better to practice forgiveness.

But suppose the hurt is quite great.

What should you do to soothe this pain?

It’s better to pray and be in the right frame of mind.

Talk your situation through with a loved one that you trust.

If that doesn’t work, seek the help of a trusted counselor.

Suffering a painful hurt could be devastating.

So, it’s better to know that two wrongs don’t make right.

Why rub salt in a wound that’s already deep?

Instead, endeavor to ease the pain and find peace.

Always remember to look for a ray of sunshine.

This is better than the disastrous consequences.

So, let’s live by the golden rule.
