What are the main teachings of the Bible?
Well, the Bible, as said before, brings us many teachings. However, the main ones are:
Do not feel anger
Even if someone has done something against you, and as difficult as it may be, do not feel anger! After all, the moment you feel such a bad feeling about someone, you are also subject to anger.
Have you ever heard of that saying that says, “Do not wish others what you do not want for yourself?” So we need to think the same way the moment someone’s anger is felt. If you want to read Jesus’ words about wrath, they are found in Matthew: 5.21-22.
Do not do good looking for recognition
The moment you help someone, you should not seek to be recognized by your act. This goodwill not count as something done to help others, but only to show itself to those around.
It is only if you are doing good, in fact, when nothing is desired in return, or as a reward.
When one expects the reward, one is only helping, but with ulterior motives. This teaching is found in Matthew: 6.1-3.
Pray where you are, but pray!
You do not have to be in the church to pray, even though being in the house of the Lord Jesus Christ brings the sense of peace. Also, it is not necessary to show the world what you pray for. The only important one to hear his prayer is not present only in public.
Pray in your bedroom, and do not be hypocritical in your prayer. Be extremely sincere when you pray, it will only do you good and show that you, no matter how much you miss, know how to admit what you did. Matthew: 6.5.
Love the next
Even if he shows himself to be his enemy. Pray for them. And keep in mind that praying for someone is already characterized as an act of love. The love you feel will only help you become a better person each day. Believe! Matthew: 6.1-3.
