Perfect Harmony


"I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony. I'd like to take it in my hand and keep it company"

B. Backer, B. Davis, R. Greenaway, R. Cook 1971

Before this little song became a commercial it was a pretty cool ditty. Its a feel good statement about a more perfect world. Another verse goes: "I'd like to see the world for once all standing hand in hand. And hear them echo through the hills, for peace to all the land." The song is about man's relationship to man. In all of the major religions of the world, there are statements about this relationship. None however is more positive and clear than the one given by Jesus. "In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you" (Matt.7:12). We have come to call this verse, THE GOLDEN RULE...It has served us well for many years in its perfect summary about the kind of holiness and harmony that God expects as people deal with each other. It is an upbeat take on human relationships. Its requirement is for us to act favorably toward others. It is so much more than, don't do any harm to each other....It is so much more than, don't do to others what you don't want done to you....It is really a golden rule about living in perfect harmony. You know how you go about the day singing some song that has come into your head? This one's not such a bad one as long as you don't get the overwhelming urge to share a carbonated beverage with someone. Peace to all the land can only be achieved when people decide to treat others the same way that they want to be treated..That's perfect harmony....

Have a wonderful day...Make a difference by doing good.... Love mark Phil.4:11
