While I'm not christian, there are two verses that stuck with me.Psalm 73:23-26
Nevertheless, I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand. With Your counsel you will guide me, and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Meaning of Whatsoever You Do to the Least of My Brothers. “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”'
The first I came by when I was volunteering in DC. A homeless person held this scripture on his sign. I'm not sure why it stuck since it doesn't have any inherent meaning for me. I guess it means you love christ so much you'd die for him.
I see the latter having a lot to do with not judging. Every time you put down someone else whether for their scripture, their life, who they are, what they do you're doing the same (or recrucifying) christ. I gave it to my friend when she felt no one was noticing that helping others is her core values. She said she can't live without helping others. Since she is christian, helping others means helping christ. (Blaming others means blaming christ).
