Do Unto Others

Do Unto Others

       Being good to other people is universally the right thing to do. Further, kindness shown to others always comes back to benefit us someplace, somewhere. For some this is easy and natural. For others, this takes work.

Do Unto Others

        In the athletic community there are many examples of doing good for others. The Ironman community in particular seems to have a lot of helping, mentoring, and giving people. Perhaps that is one reason why the sport has grown exponentially in the last several years. Giving makes us better, and I believe it makes us faster too!

         Our family has experienced a good examples of extraordinary kindness through our children. When our daughter participated in an exchange program with fifth graders in Portland, Oregon the host families in Oregon were exceptional. The love and kindness they showed our daughter will be a life-long lesson for her, and hopefully encourages her to impart this goodness to others.

         Of course, it is a lesson for us too. The best way to insure the future of our communities is for each of us to love another child as much as we love our own. If we do that, we will have no worries about our future. Many thanks to all you show love to our kids!

       I am always impressed by our team at Daggett Shuler, Attorneys At Law and the goodness they show toward each other and toward our clients. Further, through our Safe Sober Prom Night program they show these same positive characteristics to members of the extended community.   It makes a difference in the lives of others.

       Some of us ( me) need continual reminders of the golden rule. In fact, I still keep at the front of my desk drawer at work a ruler I was given in Sunday school when I was very young called “The Golden Rule” which has the verse from Matthew 7:12 imprinted on it “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.

       The beauty and bonus of the golden rule is that it is spreads good deeds making our families, businesses, church and social organizations, and communities better.

So too I will try to do,

David
