Many of us grew up with the saying “do unto other’s as you want done to you.” Parents and teachers said this as a reminder to be kind to our friends and siblings because our natural tendency was to retaliate when we felt harmed or threatened. Nothing has really changed with adulthood, as we have the same tendency to retaliate but with greater consequence, which is why God calls us to love others more than ourselves. Loving others more than ourselves also means treating others the way we want to be treated.
