    In the Bible it gives scriptures on how God wants us to live our lives, and if we follow these things we wont have any worries and few problems to face with.

    Life does'nt always seem fair its cause God wants us to go threw these trails so we can be prepared for his kingdom. 1 Peter 4 So then, scince Christ suffered physical pain, you must arm yourselves with the same attitude he had, and be ready to suffer too. For if you have suffered physically for Christ, you have finished with sin. Now God doe'nt want you to cut yoursleves or anything like that. What is meant here is that if you go threw these hard times that life throws your way, and don't give up on God. Then you will be honored in God's eyes and will recieve cowns and rewards. Matthew 5:11 God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. Be happy about it! Be very glade! For a great reward awaits you in heaven.

    Stay away from earthly things like, clubs, bars, wild parties, pornography, you will only make yoursleves worse by doing those things, and you will always feel guilty, disgusted, and vile. Don't you want the opposite? Like feeling good, joyful, and grateful. 1 Peter3:10-12 For the scriptures say, "If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days, keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies. Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it. The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers. But the Lord turns his face against those who do evil."

    How do you live a life that will please God? Show compassion to others, follow his ten comandments, never get angry instead get happy, if some one says "I hate you" say in return "I love you and so does God" and show them a loving smile, then they will walk away amazed and confused. 1 Peter 10-11 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts, Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were spaeking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ.

    If you have alot of wealth use it to help others but do it privatly because it honors God and don't boast about your charity in public for all to see and hear for God apposes all such sin. He wants you to give, not store it in your bank accounts where it rots, he wants you to store it in heaven where it will always be in this life and the next. Don't die with millions in your bank account instead die with nothing just like you did when you came into this world If you do, God will reward you with many great things.

    1 thessalonians 4:11-12 Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we instructed you before. Then people who are not Christains will respect the way you live, and you will not need to depend on others.

    We are living in the hardest of times, so it will be very difficult to follow these things beacuse of the way society has changed and the way the media supports all these nightlife, sexuall stuff, and wild parties. 2 Timothy 3 You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themslves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. they will be creul and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be rekless, be puffed up with pride, and ove pleasure rather then God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. God sent his son into the world not to condem of Judge the world but to save the world through him.
