Where Is The Golden Rule In The Bible

The Golden Rule is mentioned in Matthew 7:12 in the Holy Bible.

"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." -Matthew 7:12

It means treating others the way you would have them treat you. It means doing charity for the sake of it and not being stone-hearted about the misery of others. It also means assuming hypothetical scenarios by keeping yourself in the shoes of the less fortunate persons (the poor, needy, and oppressed). For example, if you see someone in misery due to financial, physical, or mental constraints, always lend them a helping hand. When you see someone in a dire situation, assume that you may be put in the same scenario one day. It could have been you, but that person was not so lucky. Ask yourself: what would justice, kindness, and generosity demand? Life changes direction for everyone.
