“For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For every man shall bear his own burden.”” – Galatians 6:3-5
“The purpose of both temporal and spiritual self-reliance is to get ourselves on higher ground so that we can lift others in need.” – Robert D. Hales
