"By following the Golden Rule, I become a good shepherd to myself and others."
"In everything do to others as you would have them do to you." This is the Golden Rule that Jesus taught and lived, and what better guide can I follow than the one given by the Master Teacher?
As I follow the Golden Rule, I find that I just naturally act more loving and kind. I form a heart-and-soul connection with others because I am acting from the divine Presence within us. I am taking on the sacred role of being God's good shepherd of love for the whole world.
The good shepherd acts as a caring, guiding presence, a calming influence in any storm. As God's good shepherd, I convey a message of hope and goodwill, a message of love and understanding which lets the world know that I care.
"I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me."
- John 10:14-15
