O Lord, you search me and you know me.
Our priorities are to be: justice, mercy and good faith.
“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup, so that the outside also may become clean.
Hold on to FAITH
It is the source of believing that all things are possible.
It is the fiber and strength of a confident soul.
And if what you believe is right and important
Your heart has a way of speaking
Louder than your mind.
Enjoy the beauty around you
Have the courage to see things differently and dearly
Make the world a better place one day at a time
And don't let go of the important things
That gives meaning to your life.
