My Mama taught me well. MFRWauthor

Published by Cathy Brockman on

It’s time for Week 39 – MFRW 52-week Blog Challenge. #MFRWAuthor~Words to Live by

I did some researching for great quotes on this topic and found this awesome page. of  50  inspirational quotes to live by. I highly recommend you bookmark to go to when you need a lift. As always I try to overthink things hence the research for over half an hour. I decided to stick with the one thing my mom and grandma taght me and I always try to live by.

“Do to others what you want them to do to you. This is the meaning of the law of Moses and the teaching of the prophets” (Matthew 7:12 NCV, see also Luke 6:31).

The King James version…Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you: do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.


Put simply the way my mom said..Do to others as you want them to do to you. So every time I begin to say or do something I try to think about if I would want someone to do that to me. She also taught me to turn the other cheek.  I try to be a good person but I am only human so I do like the words.Karma is a bitch and hope it doesn’t fall back on me. LOL So I sit back and watch.

Let’s go see what the other authors live by.

    Thank you

I think the golden rule is the ultimate good advice for how to live! Your mama and grandma definitely taught you well.

    Cathy Brockman · 09/29/2017 at 12:46 pm

    Thank You

Helen Henderson · 09/29/2017 at 11:36 am

Love the sentiment if the golden rule doesn’t work, and turning the other cheek didn’t help, that Karma is a bitch.

    Cathy Brockman · 09/29/2017 at 12:49 pm

    Thanks, Helen. One of them three gotta work right?

If only more people that that way. Sadly it seems that society is getting more selfish by the day. Love for your fellow man is not there, and others want people to do so much for them but give so very little in return.

    Cathy Brockman · 09/29/2017 at 7:18 pm

    That is so true

Mary J. McCoy-Dressel · 09/29/2017 at 5:50 pm

You can’t beat the Golden Rule. Thanks for sharing the link for the 50 inspirational quotes. We all need uplifting now and then. LOL.

    Cathy Brockman · 09/29/2017 at 7:18 pm

    There was some really good ones

I read somewhere (in a Comparative Religions course in university?) that all religions have a variety of the Golden Rule. It’s as close to universal wisdom as we’re ever going to find.

Robin Michaela · 10/01/2017 at 7:32 pm

Thanks for the quote list, Cathy. And yes, karma is a bitch (and sometimes you get to see it come around on the ones who did you wrong).

    Cathy Brockman · 10/01/2017 at 9:50 pm

    I’ve seen karma at work snd it’s so hard to not say na na na or laugh but I try so it doesn’t bite me back

Kenzie Michaels · 10/03/2017 at 9:37 am

Can’t go wrong with the Golden Rule:)

Flossie Benton Rogers · 10/03/2017 at 10:39 pm

Great post. Thank heaven for our mamas passing along wisdom of the ages. Plus, yes, karma is noticeable at times.
