Talk It Over…

  1. Describe the differences in each of these approaches to life:

    • Do unto others as they do unto you.

    • Do unto others before they do it to you.

    • Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

  2. What do you think Jesus meant when He said, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."  (John 13:34-35)  

  3. Many ancient philosophies urge us not to do things to one another that would cause harm or discomfort.  How is the Golden Rule given by Jesus different?

  4. Can you share an example that you have witnessed of someone practicing the Golden Rule?
