TEXT: Matthew 7:7-12

Verse 12 of this passage is the basis of the Golden Rule — do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Yet, this Golden Rule does not sit in a vacuum. It is not an independent maxim. It begins with the word “therefore,” indicating that it is related to and comes out of what Jesus has been talking about previously. J. Vernon McGee said, “‘Therefore’ is the most important word in the Golden Rule. It relates the Golden Rule to that which precedes it. That is, it postulates it on prayer. It all comes together in one package. Don’t lift out the Golden Rule and say that you live by it. Understand what the Lord is talking about. Only as we ‘ask, seek, and knock’ are we able to live in the light of the Golden Rule.”
