2.   Outside looks can be deceiving!
Samuel 16:7    But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
Proverbs 31:30    Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.

3.   Before hitting the trail to improve someone else, it would better profit us and others to start the campaign with our own self.
Matthew 7:5    Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

4.   The key to failure is trying to please everyone… the key to success is in living for an audience of One – God!
Colossians 3:22    Servants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh; not with eye service, as men pleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God:
Colossians 3:23, 24    And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

5.   Forgiveness isn’t only something God gives us… He designed it to be passed onto others.
Matthew 6:14, 15    For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

6.   Before you ask a friend to pray for you, be certain you share your care or burden with your best friend, Jesus.
I Peter 5:7    Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

7.   Never forget your words are a vital part of your witness…What are your words saying to those around you?
Colossians 4:6    Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.
