Do unto others...

I want to share to you another funny but good story from thisistheway.org with a great lesson and good idea...

There’s an old story about a farmer who sold butter to a baker. The baker complained that the farmer was selling his one-pound blocks of butter an ounce short. He measured the next shipment and, sure enough, each block was off an ounce. The baker sued the farmer.

The judge asked the farmer if he had accurate weights to measure his butter. The farmer replied that he didn’t.

“Then how do you weigh your butter?” the judge asked.

“Easy,” replied the farmer. “I just buy a one-pound loaf of bread from the baker and use it on my scales.”

Oftentimes people complain on the shortcomings of others only to find out that they have them too. Worst is the things you hate is sometimes what you are doing. When you do things, expect that there are corresponding consequences tied on it. In doing good you will gain good things. And when you sow the wind, you reap the whirlwind (Hosea 8:7). In science, there's a Newton's Law that says - "in every action there's always an equal and opposite reaction"
