"Being Religious" is not something that religious people desire. The main reason is that religion does not have a good reputation and those who are religious often have a worse reputation. The reason for the negative view of religion is because most people focus on the wrong things. God makes it pretty simple: Look after others, especially those who have less than you AND don't get caught up in what the world values but instead value what God values.
Lord, help me to value what you value and what you value most is people ... all people.
