That’s how Eugene Peterson begins his paraphrase of the “Golden Rule.”
He writes, in his paraphrase of the Bible called The Message,
“Here is a simple rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them.”
Man! Imagine how today would go if you and I would live out this wisdom of Jesus?!
Thanks Eugene for putting this ancient wisdom into new words that once again grab the attention and challenge the heart!
