Romans 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
This is almost another way of saying that we should treat other people the way that we want to be treated. We should treat all with affection and brotherly love.
No matter how contrary or difficult some people might be it doesn't give us the right to automatically be rude to them every time we see them. Sometimes a little kindness and affection will go a long way in helping them to change their ways.
We are to put others before ourselves. I always liked the acronym, JOY. Jesus First, Others Second, and Yourself Last. It is an easy way of remembering this scripture and what it teaches.
Life is short at best. We should try to make the journey as pleasant as we can for everyone in our lives.
What are you doing to make everyone else have a better day?
