Daily Lenten Thought February 18th

Looking at today’s gospel, it strikes me there’s no point writing too much.  It boils down to the Golden Rule –

“Treat others as you’d like them to treat you”.

There’s a version of this from Jewish writings that’s very interesting.

“What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow man. This is the law: all the rest is commentary.” (Talmud, Shabbat 31a.)

Maybe we need less commentary! There’s little doubt the world would be a better place if we paid a little more attention to these words.
