The Golden Rule…Be Nice to People

The Golden Rule - Treat others the way you'd like to be treated.

The Golden Rule – Treat others the way you’d like to be treated.

Thinking about the Golden Rule, I found this quote by Paul S. Randal in 2011 to be accurate:

“There’s an age-old maxim called The Golden Rule which basically states that you should behave towards other people in the way you’d like them to behave towards you. All major religions have famous sayings that encapsulate this ethic of reciprocity, and it’s mentioned as early as 1800BC in a set of rules from ancient Babylon, so the idea pre-dates most major religions too…It all really boils down to: be nice to people.” …Paul S Randal

I also found this lovely chart on Pinterest, although I don’t know who created it, reminding us that this is not just a Christian teaching…

So could we all try to be nice to people?  Think of what a wonderful world there could be…
