The Sermon on the MountOne day during His ministry Jesus gave clear guidelines to His apostles and to the bystanders about the way God wanted us to live.

Another father during his homily used an example of Mahatma Gandhi, a revered Indian politician, who was a Hindu, yet lived the gospel of Christ.
