“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
Luke 6:27-38
Focus on the Gospel
February 24, Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
     By today’s standards the people who followed and listened to Jesus were poor and worked very
hard to provide a meager existence for themselves and their family.  They had no hope of rising
above their station or achieving an easier life.  They knew the Ten Commandments (Decalogue) and
the command God gave Moses to love God with our whole heart, mind, soul and strength and to
love our neighbor as ourselves (Great Commandment).  But they lived under the brutal oppression
of the Romans and the severe teaching and demands of the Jewish leaders of their day that seemed
to rule by “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.”   When Jesus told them “love your enemies; do
good to those who hate you” and “do to others as you would have them do to you,” he was
reminding them of the Decalogue and the Great Commandment.  Despite more than two thousand
years of Christianity, much of our world is still about “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.”  
Jesus is reminding us to “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
