MUSINGS – January 21, 2019


Matthew 7:12
Always do for other people everything you want them to do for you. That is the meaning of Moses’ Teachings and the Prophets.

Jesus here gives the practical application to all the spiritual laws. This is the law of true love.

If you were oppressed, persecuted, and abused, you would want someone to free you. So, free the oppressed.

If you we’re hungry, you would want to be fed. Feed the hungry.

If you were naked, you would want to be clothed. Clothe the naked.

If you were helpless, you would want to be helped. Help the helpless.

Or you were unloved, you would want to be loved. Love the unloved.

If you were homeless, you would want a home. Provide shelter for the homeless.

The prophet Zechariah delivered God’s message this way, “This is what the LORD of Armies says: Administer real justice, and be compassionate and kind to each other. Don’t oppress widows, orphans, foreigners, and poor people. And don’t even think of doing evil to each other.” (7:9-10 )

Put feet to your faith, do something.
