Proverbs 20:28 NIV

By April 20, 2024No Comments

“Love and faithfulness keep a king safe; through love his throne is made secure.”

As a king shows love and faithfulness or mercy to his subjects, they return it in kind. This helps to assure the kings position and security in his role. In the same way, we see people who act kindly and forgive quickly tend to receive the same treatment from others when needed in their life. We run across this truth in the New Testament when we see Jesus say we are too treat others the way we want to be treated. It’s known as the Golden Rule. Tom Monaghan began his company with this verse as the foundation of how he would do business. Over the years there has certainly been all kinds of pressures to abandon that simple truth in favor of new perspectives in society. Many of them proved to be fleeting and would change on a whim. Tom stuck with this powerful, clear, yet simple truth. With current annual sales of $8.57 billion it seems to have not hurt them. We know the company Tom founded as Domino’s Pizza. It is the largest pizza chain in the world in terms of global retail sales. Everyone is aware of Truitt Cathey’s company. Chick-fil-A is enjoying their ninth consecutive year topping the ACSI’s favorite fast food list. Another man whose Biblical worldview includes treating others lovingly. Today live Jesus and be kind. #BeTheEdge

“So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” Jesus
