“As you wish others to do to you, do so to them” (Luke 6:31). This simple advice, also known as The Golden Rule, is foundational for teaching responsibility. In short, we must take responsibility for how we treat others, and must always be guided by consideration for the impact of our behavior on them. It is easy to know how others impact us, but more difficult to consider how we impact others. How would your mate describe your behavior toward them? Do they feel honored, respected and deeply considered? Choose today to treat others as you would like to be treated.
