    Colossians 2:6 "As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:" One of the most famous sayings of our Lord Jesus Christ which everyone knows as the Golden Rule "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you " should be the first thing we consider, regarding those among whom we live and work every day. And this Golden Rule must be something that really lives and breates and moves inside us. While we want to be truly the blessed poor in spirit, they that mourn, the meek, those that hunger and thirst after righteousness it can only be formed in us by the things that draw out those virtues, like provocations and insults. The same is true if we want to be sincerely the pure in heart, the merciful, and the peacemaker it means encountering people that challenge us regarding that grace. We've often heard about some who get big promotions, and later forget where they came from. If we ever expect to grow up into that supremely great character of virtue and knowledge and self control, of patience and piety and brotherly love and to truly reflect that grace in our hearts by a manner of life worthy of being called by Jesus' name then we have to hold on to that first love, and that first hour's experience through all our days, and as much as it is in our power with everyone we meet.
