  3. 3. MEEKNESS “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “And I will make you fishers of men.” -Matthew 4:19
  4. 4. JOYFULNESS “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” -Matthew 5:11-12

And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than your whole body to go into hell.” -Matthew 5:29-30

  13. 13. FAITH “Be careful not to do your „acts of righteousness‟ before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.” So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. So that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:1-8

Then your Father who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words.
