Early on most of us learn the Golden Rule: “do unto others as you would have others do unto you”. To children the lesson may be as simple as sharing toys, being gracious to friends and parents, and to say “please” and “thank you”. As we grow older, the message should be no less important—it should help form our character. Ask yourself: Why criticize when we can offer a compliment? Why insult when we can praise? Why hurt when we can help? May the respect, compassion, and forgiveness we desire to receive be the same gifts we extend to others with whom we live and work, and to all persons, without exception. For if we live by God’s Golden Rule, we will be at peace with ourselves and with one another.
