Confucius is best known for his famous quote, “Do not do to others what you do not want them to do to you.” However, did you know that Jesus or Yahshua has a way better version of the Golden rule?
He said in Matthew 7:12:
“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them.” Did you see the difference?
If you try to compare the two versions of the Golden Rule, Confucius’ version is in the negative form. He says, “do not do.” It is passive. It is very easy not to do harm to other people. Yet, we can see the Golden Rule of Yahshua to be active. He says, “Do.” Christ wants us to constantly find ways to do good to our fellow men whenever it is in our power to do so.
Imagine a world filled with people who follow the golden rule of our Savior. This world would be a way better place to live in!
