One Last Priority for You!
Be generous in prosperity, and thankful in adversity. Be worthy of the trust of thy neighbor, and look upon him or her with a bright and friendly face. Be a treasure to the poor, an admonisher to the rich, an answerer of the cry of the needy, and a preserver of God’s pledge.
Be fair in thy judgment and guarded in thy speech. Be unjust to no man and show all meekness to all men. Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty. Be a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression.
Let integrity and uprightness distinguish all your acts. Be a home for the stranger, a balm to the suffering, a tower of strength for the fugitive. Be eyes to the blind and a guiding light unto the feet of the erring. Be a pillar of the temple of righteousness, a breath of life to the body of humanity, and an ensign of the host of justice.
Be a luminary above the horizon of virtue, a dew to the soil of the human heart. Be an ark on the ocean of knowledge, a sun in the heaven of bounty, and a gem on the diadem of wisdom. Be a shining light for thy generation and a fruit upon the tree of humility.
