Some people are like a chameleon, they change to suit their surroundings. You can make a real difference by sticking by your beliefs and standards and not wavering, by having morals and ethics and living by them. In a culture where people are only occupied by their own happiness, someone who is true to their beliefs and morals really stands out. Revelation 3:15-16 says I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You can't be a Christian on Sunday and worldly Monday to Saturday - God sees your heart.

Jesus hung out with people that no one else wanted to - prostitutes, tax collectors, the sick and poor. Do you spend time with people who are hard to love? The new kid; the muslim girl with the burka; the kid with body odour issues; the girl who has an unfortunate case of acne; the boy with no idea about personal space; the overweight kid? Are you kind to them? Jesus loves them. Luke 6:32-33 says “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that."
