When I’m 91

Saturday, 23 May

Luke 6:31: Do for others what you want them to do for you.

Rush, rush, rush … have you noticed how transactional our world has become? Even with people we know, we often don’t want to stop to chat because we have places to go, things to do, people to see. If only we realised what our busyness says to the people whom we rush past.

My wife was relating a story to me over dinner the other night. She’d been out buying a light globe of all things and there was this dear 91-year-old woman in the queue ahead of her.

She’d had a stroke, she was finding things difficult and yes … she was moving rather slowly. So by the time the shop attendant had finished serving her and helping her out of the store, as you might imagine, quite some time had gone by.

The attendant rushed back in, so apologetic. But my wife just smiled back and said, “I hope when I’m 91, someone treats me that way”.

We rush around so busy, so self-important. And anyone who’s a bit slow, or a bit different … well, we can end up rushing straight over the top of them.

Jesus once said this:

Luke 6:31 Do for others what you want them to do for you.

The “golden rule” it’s often called; treat others the way you’d like them to treat you.

But if you go to that chapter and read all of what He said, you’ll discover that He was speaking about how we treat our enemies – people who’ve treated you badly, people who’ve stolen from you, people who’ve annoyed you – as this slow, old 91-year-old could easily have done to busy, important people like you and me.

And yet, how we treat people who aren’t pleasing to us says everything about our relationship with this Jesus, who suffered and died for the likes of you and me – everything.

Do for others what you want them to do for you.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
