Old Rule – New Twist

A modern interpretation of “The golden rule” was posted on a church sign “Tweet others as you want to be tweeted.”


Like all other forms of communication twitter can be used in a positive or negative way. The golden rule when practiced makes a positive difference. This is true of all our daily actions whether at home, work, play, or tweeting.


The power of our words (spoken or written) can be positive or negative. They can build others up or tear them down.


Jesus’ version of the tweet, “…in everything therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you,” still works when practiced. (Mt 7:12)


So, may the cry of the psalmist be our prayer. “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight O Lord my strength and my Redeemer.” (Psalm19:14).
