“Wherefore the Lord God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the Lord saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.” – 1 Samuel 2:30
“A consistent, righteous life produces an inner power and strength that can be permanently resistant to the eroding influence of sin and transgression.” – Richard G. Scott
