Joe's Gems

What was it the ancient Master said? "Keep on, then, seeking first the kingdom and his righteousness, and all these [other] things will be added to you. So, never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties. Sufficient for each day is its own evil."

  7. Ignorance is the temple of the presumptuous.
