. Hang Out With Sinners.
“Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear him. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, ‘This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.’” —Luke 15:1

Afflict the Comfortable.
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. … You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.” —Matthew 23:25, 27

Comfort the Afflicted.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” —Matthew 11:28–30

Promote the Dignity and Worth of Women.
“Jesus said, ‘Go find my brothers and tell them.’ … Mary Magdalene found the disciples and told them, ‘I have seen the Lord!’ Then she gave them his message.” —John 20:17–18

Protect Children.
“And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” —Matthew 18:5–6

Care More About Reaching the Lost Than Catering to the Found.
“Who needs a doctor, the healthy or the sick? I’m here inviting outsiders, not insiders—an invitation to a changed life, changed inside and out.” —Luke 5:31–32

Care Nothing About Power, Prominence, Position or Prestige.
“In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant.” —Philippians 2:5–7

Live Simply.
“Don’t take any money in your money belts—no gold, silver or even copper coins. Don’t carry a traveler’s bag with a change of clothes and sandals or even a walking stick.” —Matthew 10:9–10

Be Anti-Racist.
“When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, ‘Will you give me a drink?’ (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, ‘You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?’ (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)” —John 4:7–9

Make Sure It’s Never About You.
“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” —Mark 10:45

Each new day our goal is to begin and end the day in Jesus Christ. We should daily ask The Lord to sanctify us in Him, drawing us neaier to Jesus. To teach us to abide in Him as He abides in us. Praying for Jesus to give us the Blessings of His courage and wisdom to to change our heart's, minds and life He has given us of all things that are not of Him.

Father You are The only "I Am" each new day my heart Trust in You come what may I know Your leading the way to remind me/us that we can do all things through Christ who Strengthens us, Thank You Lord for Your Will not mine and Your Faithfulness every new day to serve and become more like You, in Jesus name Amen

Our focus should be on Him doing his will and nothing else. Peter was focussing on the waves of the sea suddenly and we know that he started sinking down. Many a time we look at problems of life like Peter and lose our focus . But thank God for His Spirit the Holy Spirit who shifts our attention from the world to Jesus. Amen.
