It’s called the Golden Rule and it is most recognized by these words from Jesus Christ that are found in the Bible:
“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them. (Matthew 7:12, KJV)
The Golden Rule is often more simply stated as, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Many might be surprised to discover that a version of the Golden Rule is common to many religions around the world. Perhaps the reason it has been taught for centuries is that it works. Treating others the way you want to be treated is more than just a moral philosophy. It’s a key to living with fulfillment.
Our entire lives are dominated by relationships. The English poet John Donne was stating this when he wrote, “No man is an island.” From the moment of birth, our lives become intertwined with the lives of others. We forge relationships with our parents, our grandparents, our siblings, friends, school teachers, bosses, the mailman, and the young lady who rings up our sale each week at the grocery store. Building and cultivating relationships is a part of the human experience. Those who do it well experience a richness of life that those who do not fail to achieve.
