The 3 most important words 

Ask yourself - what are the 3 most important words? In the English language? You have ever heard? That should have been said? That were left out?

Focus on the answer you have in mind.

My Sunday School class did not meet this morning. As we drove home from church, Julie and I asked Emily what she talked about in Sunday School this morning. She resisted the first few probing questions from Julie. Then, with a little more force in the conversation, I demanded that she answer the question. This is her actual verbatim response:

"Treat people the way you want."

Now, for those of you who are not as familiar with the Bible passage it is (Luke 6:31 - Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.). "To be treated" are important words. Leave those 3 words off the statement and it takes on a whole new meaning. Emily took offense when Julie and I started laughing. We teased her for a moment. She then stated the complete quote "Treat people the way you want to be treated."

"To be treated" are important words. What were your thoughts on the 3 most important words?
