Three Rules

Our family has been working on following three rules.  Whenever someone breaks the rule we are able to give a gentle reminder that rule # … was broken.  We’re not fully following these rues yet but I am confident that the more we speak these rules into each other’s life we will be on track.  So what are the rules?

1. Do no harm.
2. Do all the good you can do.
3. Stay in love with Jesus.

It’s the third rule that keeps us from falling into legalism.  Do you know where these rules came from?John Wesley.  However, John Wesley simply lifted them from Jesus (love God, love neighbor) who lifted them from Deuteronomy 6 (love God) and Leviticus 19 (love neighbor).
