therefore, what is it there for?

Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the law and the prophets.

The golden rule right? Heard it a thousand times. Seems easy enough right? But what if you are following the rule and no one else is? Do you still have to love them then?

Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the law and the prophets.

Therefore? What’s that there for? Well, let’s back up a verse…..

If you then, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him. Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the law and the prophets.

The therefore shows us that it’s linked to the previous verse. So what does this all mean?

God wants to give you good gifts. He wants to bless you. He loves you. If you put your trust and hope in that, then you are able to love those who might not love you in return. Who cares if the people you are trying to love turn and do harm to you, you’re hope is not in them. It is in the hope and faith that God will take care of you and bless you, and love you.

How much more will your father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him?

Good Stuff.
