The Sermon on the Mount
What would you do?
Someone is mean to you at school...
Other children make fun of you for refusing to try a cigarette...
Others make fun of you because you don't swear...
How do the they help us be more like Jesus?
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Look like light
Taste like salt
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle,
and put it under a bushel, but
on a candlestick; and it
giveth light unto all
that are in the house.
16 Let your light so
shine before men,
that they may see
your good works,
and glorify your
is in heaven.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Loving your enemies
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
“[Perfection] will not come all at once, but line upon line, precept upon precept, example upon example, and even then not as long as we live in this mortal life. But here we lay the foundation to prepare us for that perfection. It is our duty to be better today than we were yesterday, and better tomorrow than we are today”
Acts of Service
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
The Golden Rule
12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
Becoming like Jesus
