There will be people in the world that try to wrong us, but we should respond to these situations as Christians. We can do this by treating the other person how we want to be treated. We should “do good” to those that mistreat us. We should “Pray” for our enemies so that they may feel God. This teaching can be applied to other worldviews. It is almost considered a universal perspective. Although these are Jesus’ teachings, it is considered common curtesy around the world, and it should be used by all. As human beings we have emotions that allow us to be compassionate towards one another. This same teaching is taught to us in schools, we call it the golden rule. This teaching reveals that Jesus is full of love. As we study the life of Jesus and discover all the various obstacles he went through, and the miracles he performed for people, we understand that Jesus displays love through everything that he does. We know that he does this for us. He portrays the qualities that we should want. Our goal should be to be more like Jesus.
