Lesson 3 - “Do For Others As You Would Have Them Do For You”
That’s actually a paraphrase from Matthew 7:12. Most of us expect people to treat us better than they often do, but do we hold ourselves to the same standard?
If you want to be treated better, start treating other people better. People tend to respond to the way you deal with them, and if you find yourself being mistreated too often, it may have something to do with your own behavior. If you don’t like the way people are interacting with you, it’s entirely possible that they’re simply responding to how you’re treating them.
This is especially true when you’re dealing with someone in a tense situation. Before reacting, ask yourself, “How would I want someone to treat me if the shoe were on the other foot?”
