- God doesn’t bless unforgiveness.
- God doesn’t bless envy.
- God doesn’t bless self-righteousness.

And whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.

The best thing that you can do for your own welfare is to seek the welfare of others first!
Socialism is a cheap imitation of the ways of the Kingdom of God!
Do you see a man diligent in his business?
He shall stand before kings;
He shall not stand with obscure men.
