Notes:

We should be a certain kind of people:

3. Love like brothers
4. Tender hearted / compassionate
5. Humble

How should we respond to hardships?
1. Don’t retaliate when attacked
2. Bless those who mistreat you
     - “If you are suffering from a bad man’s injustice, forgive him lest there be two bad men.” - C.S. Lewis

How to have more good days:
1. If you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all.
2. Stop doing what’s wrong and start doing what’s right.  
3. Be a person who creates peace, not tension

Why be the church God always wanted?
1. God watches over the righteous
2. God actively listens to the righteous’ prayers
3. God stands against those who do wrong
