It’s usually pretty easy to know how you want to be treated in a particular situation. That’s what the Bible says: “Do for others as you would like them to do for you” (Luke 6:31).
Guess what that’s often all it takes to figure out what’s fair and what’s not fair. Usually the first step in treating someone fairly is to ask, how would I want to be treated? If you can answer that question, you can answer questions like what would be fair? And what would be unfair a lot easier. Luke 6:27-30.
When was the last time you felt you were treated unfairly? What would have been fair? Can you recall a time when you were unfair? How would you have acted if you had treated the person the way you like to be treated?
“God, when I’m tempted to be unfair to somebody, help me to remember to treat others exactly as I would want to be treated.”
