“Do You Want To Be Healed?”

You know, Jesus is often identified with the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Jesus is, in fact, often stamped with the authorship of that phrase, but you can find a number of versions of it cropping up in cultures all around the globe. And listen, there are limits to the Golden Rule.  For my money, if Jesus is the author of any “rule” it would have to have been what is becoming known today as the Platinum Rule. That one goes this way –  “Do unto others as they would be done by.”  That is to say, don’t just do for people what you would like – take the time to find out what they might really like before you “help” them.
