"In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets." (Matthew 7:12 NRSV)
"Grandfather's Corner," is the story of an old man who lived with his son and his son's wife and children. The man was almost deaf and blind and had difficulty eating without spilling his food. Occasionally, he would drop a bowl and break it. His son and his wife thought it was disgusting and made the old man eat in a corner behind the stove. They gave him a wooden bowl which could not be broken.

One day the old man's little grandson was working with some pieces of wood. When his father asked what he was doing, he replied, "I'm making a trough for you and mother to eat out of when I'm grown up." From that moment on, the grandfather rejoined the family at the table. No one ever said another word about it.

Do we treat others like we want to be treated?

Dear Jesus, give me the strength to fully give your gift of acceptance. Amen.
