Verse of the Day: 'Do not envy the violent'

By Administrator 11-09-2006

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it. Do not say to your neighbor, "Go, and come again, tomorrow I will give it" - when you have it with you. Do not quarrel with anyone without cause, when no harm has been done to you. Do not envy the violent and do not choose any of their ways.

- Proverbs 3:27-31
