Guidelines for living holy
Matthew 5

17 "Don't misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose.
21 "You have heard that our ancestors were told, 'You must not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment.'22 But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell.
37 Just say a simple, 'Yes, I will,' or 'No, I won't.' Anything beyond this is from the evil one.
42 Give to those who ask, and don't turn away from those who want to borrow.
46 If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that? Even corrupt tax collectors do that much.47 If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else? Even pagans do that.48 But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.
Matthew 6
4 Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.

But you are to be perfect, even as our Father in heaven is perfect. 
Jesus came to this world to show us the way to the Father, when He left He gave this duty over to us top guide people to the Father and to heaven.
The easiest way to start this is by the way we live our lives, and how other see us or rather see Jesus in our lives. Jesus gave clear guidelines when He was on earth and He still guides us daily through the works of the Holy Spirit.
What stands out is not only that we must be perfect but the way we must love and care for other must be so different that what we normally does.
You must not only love your loved ones but in the same way you must love your enemies. This is God's love. He loves us unconditionally and has only our best interests at heart.
Let God guide you in loving other with a pure and caring heart today.

To God be all the glory.
