Hello, I was thinking about the time I bought a car in my home town, this was the time I was visiting Mum every week because of her dementia condition. The car show compound was at the bottom of my Mothers road, we needed a reliable car to travel the eighty miles there and the same back home.There was one car in my price bracket and I paid the price he asked I didn't ask for discount or anything, why I asked myself yesterday, didn't I ask for something off the price? Well my reason was I wanted to treat him as I would like myself to be treated.
Unfortunately he didn't treat me the same way, the engine didn't work properly and I found out later the body work had been poorly painted over,there was a fault in one of the panels, the paint just wore off revealing what he had covered over.Not only that there was water ingress through the boot into the foot wells of the car. The car was a disaster and was completely unreliable, and would break down on my journey home time after time.
So why do I still try to treat people as I would like myself to be treated, I suppose you know what I'm going to say. I looked in the Bible using the same words above and I couldn't find anything. So I prayed for the scripture and this is what I had, it always surprises me still that a scripture came. These are the words that came to me, love thy neighbour as thyself
Mt 19:19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
