“The man of integrity walks securely but he who takes crooked
paths will be found out.” Proverbs 10:9
6. Love and Compassion:
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something too drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you came to visit me. The righteous will answer him ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothed you? When did we see you in prison and go visit you? The King will reply, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”

“Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into to the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, ‘I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything–all she had to live on” Mark: 12:41-44
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not men.” Colossians 3:23
11. Team Work:
As a team we encourage all, young and old, to find their gift and teach them to use it to benefit them through everyday life. “If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion tohis faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.” Romans 12:6-8
