Often referred to as the “Golden Rule” the do unto others Bible Verse is found in the Gospels, specifically the books of Matthew, Mark and Luke. Although the verse in Luke is worded differently it has the same meaning/concept. Below you can see the Bible Verse from the 3 different books. The translation being used is ESV (English Standard Version)
Matthew 7:12 – “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets”
Luke 6:31 – “And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.”
Mark 12:31 – “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
I believe that anything written in the Bible is important and is a piece of valuable information/advice that we need to live by, however I also believe that anything mentioned more than once in the Bible is a piece of information or advice that is absolutely crucial, and so important that God felt it needed to be said multiple times.
The do unto others Bible verse teaches us that we need to treat others with the love and respect that we would want somebody to show us. Even when others are incredibly evil towards us or do something hurtful towards us, we as Christians are to continue to show the same love and respect back to them that we ourselves want.
In fact the Word of God tells us to love our enemies (Golden Rule), and that in doing so it would heap burning coals on their heads, and God will reward us for loving despite being mistreated.
Proverbs 25:21,22 – “If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat, and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink,for you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.”
By taking heed to the do unto others Bible Verse you will bring glory to God, and be a great witness to those around you.
