The Golden Rule

We are given opportunities every day to practice the Golden Rule!

Matthew 7:12-14 (ESV)

12  “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

13  “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.

14  For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.


The Golden Rule

  • The Golden Rule is the summit of ethics, behavior, righteousness, and godliness


  • The Golden Rule reveals the heart of God


Live the Golden Rule

  1. In your marriage
  2. In your family
  3. In your friendships
  4. In your neighborhood
  5. In the marketplace
  6. In society
  7. In your relationship with God


All the Law & the Prophets

Matthew 7:12 (ESV)

12  “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

"The whole of scripture is summed up in this one thought!"

  • Love God
  • Love People
  • Live Love

The Narrow Gate

13  “Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.

14  For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.

  • The Narrow Gate leads to life 
  • The wide gate leads to destruction
  • Those who find the narrow gate are few

Next Steps:

  1. I will memorize the Golden Rule. 
  2. I will meditate on the Golden Rule and ask God to help me live it out.
  3. I will understand that others may not live by the Golden Rule and I will live by it anyway.
  4. I will pray for God’s help in living the Golden Rule.
