The Doorpost: Summing up God’s commands

By Mike Miller

matthew 7 11-12

We often think of these two verses separately, not considering how they might be connected. First, Jesus reminds us that even though we are evil, we know how to give good gifts to our children. Our Father in heaven is good. He will give us good things when we ask Him.

Then Jesus tells us to do something consistent with the goodness of our heavenly Father—do good things to others. Do the things we wish others would do for us. This sums up all of God’s commands.

For the Kingdom,
