FEBRUARY 22

DO TO OTHERS WHAT YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO TO YOU

Matthew 7:12 “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”

We killed a goat and prepared a grand feast. The women used my classroom to cook the meat, rice, sauce, and drinks for three hundred villagers for the children’s Christmas program.

By nightfall the room was a wall-to-wall chaos of splattered food drops, spilled grease, and splotches of tomato sauce.

It was dark when everyone left and I was too tired to scrub the classroom. So I planned to clean it the following day since I was the one who gave the party.

Early the next morning, a group of church ladies arrived to clean the room. When they departed, the classroom was cleaner than it had been before the party.

The godly, sweet women were simply practicing, do until others as you would have them do to you.
