2 Timothy 2:22-26

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

We need to put the ways of man behind us when we turn to the Lord. We must try to have the qualities that Christ wants us to have. These include but are not limited to gentleness, patience, righteousness, faith, charity, peace and meekness. This must be our main focus, not the ways of the world.
