The car beside me slowed down to give way to another car. It was the right thing to do. However, loud impatient horning came from the taxi behind that car. Apparently, the taxi was unhappy that the car in front gave way to others. Further down the road, the taxi stopped abruptly to alight his passenger. It was illegal to stop there, but I guess the taxi driver was not interested. He expected all other people must give him way.
What about us? Do we expect others to treat us well but we can treat them whichever way we like according to our whims and fancies? Do we actually think that it is correct to think in such ways? Maybe we do it out of ignorance. Maybe we did it unintentionally. Or maybe we just don’t care. However, if they treat us the way we treat them, we get angry. They should not be like that, so uncultured, so uneducated. What about ourselves?
That is the wrong type of attitude that we cannot afford to have. The bible exhorts us to do unto others what we want others to do to us. This is commonly called the golden rule (Matthew 7:12). Do we want others to love us? Then we learn to love them first. Do not wait for them to do so. Be the first mover.
Another exhortation is in humility consider others more significant than ourselves (Phil 2:3). When we can do that, we will find it easier to fulfil the golden rule. The world would be a much better place. We would also be happier people.
As citizens of heaven, we have an obligation to God and man. We stand as ambassadors of God in a evil world. It is for us to be light and salt to the world, to shine in the darkness and to cure the ills of societies. It all begins with doing what is fair to others and ourselves. Live by the word of God and we cannot go wrong.
In Christ's service,
During our last leaders' retreat, I've outlined the direction that God had impressed upon my heart for the church. We need to be:
The church must also start to fulfill its destiny, that is, to evangelise and to bring the good news to everybody, far and near. We in MPCC had been rather active in missions overseas. I hope we can be even more fervent for souls around us. About four in five people we meet everyday is lost and in need of the gospel. If we are so concerned for the victims of disasters, let us be even more concern for the people whose destination may be hell. They need the good news more urgently than anything else. All said, we still need to engage in good works and never be weary doing it.
My dear brethrens, I wish you a blessed New Year. May we decide to live a life worthy of God. May it be that some day we can always look back and say that it was a life well lived.
The love, peace and grace of God be with you all always.
