What shall we live by?
In spite of seemingly irreconcilable
differences between the peoples of the world today,
In five ways
should a clansman minister to his friends and familiars — by generosity,
courtesy and benevolence, by treating them as he treats himself,
All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.
Do not unto others what you would not they should do unto you.
What is hurtful to yourself, do not do to your fellow man.
Do not to others which if done to thee, would cause thee pain.
In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief,
No one of you is a believer until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.
As thou deemest thyself so deem others. Then shalt thou become a partner in heaven.
Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain
That nature only is good when it shall not do unto
“Love thy neighbor as thyself.”
This is the Golden Rule of life, which all people know, but too few practice. We deceive ourselves when we boast about our understanding and are unable to prove that we possess any. But when we accept this Truth as our rule to live by, then shall we witness the establishment on earth of the true brotherhood of man, under the guidance of the Fatherhood of God.
By Dr. James W. Parker, President
