The ‘good ‘olé ….GOLDEN RULE: We’ve all heard the saying…. “Whatever goes around… comes around.” I’ll bet that 95% of the people who use that cliché… do it with the negative connotation. I’ve had it said to me…a number of times… always in the negative connotation. Meaning: If you do something bad to someone, it will come back on you just as bad, or worse.
The PROBLEM… who gets to define BAD? People who are BAD, and who THINK in bad terms… will slap you with a BAD connotation. Conversely …good thinkers equal good connotations.
Those people using it in the negative sense are the naysayers… the negative thinkers… and the pessimists. They’re the friends of satan. Not me! I’m a positive thinker.
Now, to me, “what goes around…comes around,” MEANS that whenever I do good… it will come back to me, just as good, or better. Now… that’s thinking positive. Remember what Matthew told us in… 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.”
The good thing about the “Golden Rule” is… when you apply it…not only does it come back to you in a positive manner…it ‘makes you feel better’ …too. And, who doesn’t like to feel better? Me! For sure.
