Paul, Jon and Liz continue their discussion of Jesus’s compassion, looking at what he teaches in the ‘golden rule.'
“In the Golden Rule, Jesus flips our natural tendency to self-care – he doesn’t deny the value of self-care, but he says let that be a window into the world of love for you.”
“Be attentive to others in the same way you want people to be attentive to you.”
“ 'Not that we should live one life but a thousand lives, binding ourselves to a thousand souls by the filaments of so loving a sympathy that their lives become ours.’ I think I’ve read that sentence of Warfield’s a hundred times. It’s one of the most beautiful descriptions of the Christian life that I know."
