Insensitivity prevents people from really hearing and understanding God's message. Openly showing others the evidence of God in your life will be rewarded with more life from God. As we sow the word of the gospel in receptive people’s hearts, God makes it grow. (principles from MK4:10-32)

Those that like to impress others and be honored publicly, but take advantage of those in difficult circumstances, will be punished most severely. The poor who give to God are honored. (principles from MK12:35-13:2)

Some unbelievers deceive people away from the truth, from God Himself. They and their followers will be exposed and judged unfavorably, and what they did in private will be proclaimed to everyone. As for open harmfulness, God will take away the life of anyone who is greedy for possessions and a life of leisure. Give a large portion of your wealth to the poor (see also LK 19:1-10), and don't wait. Be ready to meet the Lord. We all must repent or perish. Though the Lord is patient, our time does have a limit. (principles from LK11:53-13:9)

Love, give and do good to, bless and pray for your enemies, those who hate you, curse you, and mistreat you. Do to others as you would have them do to you. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. Be merciful to people and do not judge or condemn them; forgive them. Give, and a good overflowing measure will be poured back to you. Doing what Jesus says will make you solid as a rock, disregard and at some point you will be quickly destroyed. (principles from LK6:20-49)
