We look to Jesus as our Pattern, "Who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross" 12:2.  "For even hereunto were ye called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example that ye should follow His steps" 1 Peter 2:21.
 
We look to Jesus as our Pattern of patience, purity, gentleness, kindness, sympathetic helpfulness, humility, and every other noble virtue. "Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus."
 
We look to Jesus as our Guide, Friend, Companion, and Comforter. We are never left alone. He is always at our side to hear our cry to cheer our hearts to uplift our spirits. He leads us in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
 
Christian friends, look at yourself and you will have doubts; look at circumstances and you will be discouraged; but look to Jesus and you will always be safe, satisfied, and blessed.
 
      Oh, look away to Jesus, when sorrow presses sore,
     And when temptations gather thick, keep looking all the more.
      "Tis looking unto Jesus turns darkness into light,
      Looking unto Jesus makes it right, all right.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Jesus, lead Thou on, Till our rest is won!"
