Because of God, We Have So Much Goodness to Give
Jesus said, “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets” (Matt. 7:12). There were many laws written in the Law of Moses, and the prophets said many inspired words. However, Jesus states what they all were communicating is boiled down to “whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them. Christians treat, love, and speak to others as we desire to be handled, that is, with care.
Our fellowship with Jesus makes this possible. We know bad company corrupts good morals (1 Cor. 15:33). Fellowship with God and his people will produce the opposite. The way a person responds to life and reason can be linked to who they give their ear to by listening. Satan influenced Adam and Eve, and it was reflected by their fear and shame that came because of their sin. God asked them, “Who told you that you were naked” (Gen. 3:10). They went from the dream of being fruitful and multiplying the earth to hiding naked in fear because of who they fellowshipped with (the serpent).
People deserve better than what the world gives them. That is one of the reasons we are here in this world. We are still here to provide precious souls with what God wants them to have. Satan, through sin, has dominion over this world. Since we belong to God, Satan does not have rule over us (Romans 6:12-13). For me to give the world something better that is from God, I cannot allow my frustrations to erupt on them when they deserve something better that is from God.
This world would be a better place if we applied this to our lives. We are sometimes unsuccessful at this, yet we are determined to be the giver of good things like our Creator (James 1:17). Jesus never gives us the opposite of what we need (Matt. 7:9-10), and He gives us more than we ask (Matt. 7:11).
