Several variations of the “Golden Rule” are commonly known. It might be “do unto others as they have done unto you,” or “do unto others before they do unto you.”
However, Jesus said “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
How do we want to be treated as a leader? With respect, understanding, love, appreciation, patience, etc.? If this is how we want to be treated, Jesus would tell us to treat others this way first!
If we are not careful, it is easy to react, instead of acting as we should. We must also be careful to guard against overreacting.
