“Whenever we fail to do GOOD to others, is exactly how we fail to do GOOD TO JESUS. Are you convinced that Jesus is happy with the way you treat your family, your neighbors, your enemies?” – L.

“You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit you to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

No man that wars entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please Him who has chosen him to be a soldier.” – The Apostle Paul. (Need I say more?)
“All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth.

This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth; but you shall meditate therein day and night, that you mayest observe to do according to all that is written in it: for then you shall make thy way prosperous, and then you shall have good success.” – God the Father
