Remember the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them to do unto you.
This simple code of behavior, when practiced, made our schools, and society, a far better place than they are today. The Golden Rule has been called the greatest principle of human relations and originated from the Bible with these words of Jesus: “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets” (Matthew 7:12).
According to Jesus, two great commands serve as the foundation of all the teaching of law and the prophets (Matt. 22:37-40). The first and greatest commandment is to “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, mind, and soul.” He stated that the second great command is to “love thy neighbor as thyself,” which is another reference to the Golden Rule. In other words, “love” is the act of doing unto others as we would want them to do unto us.
The Golden Rule continues to be Jesus’ expected standard of behavior by His followers.
