Regardless of what faith, religion, or world view you come from, there are some teachings of Jesus Christ that seem to be things that almost everyone can agree on.
Whether you're a Christian and consider Jesus your Lord and Savior, think of Him a great teacher, or don't subscribe to organized religion at all, here you'll find some of the words of Jesus that anyone striving to be a better human being can relate to.
In these quotes, Christ talks about things like mercy, forgiveness, and love- which is perhaps the most important life lesson of them all.
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."
"Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy."
"Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to cast a stone."
"For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required."
"Let your light shine."
"So in everything, do to everyone what you would have them to do you, for this sums up the Law of the Prophets."
"Blessed are the peacemakers."
"Can any of you by worrying add a single hour to his life?"
"For everyone who exalts will be humbled and everyone who humbles himself will be exalted."
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it's own."
"Love your neighbor as yourself."
"Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
"Do not judge or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
