But he who has mercy on the poor, happy is he.------------------------------------Proverbs 14:21


For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this.

“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”-----------------------------------------Galatians 5:14

but a good man will be satisfied from above.---------------------------------------Proverbs 14:14
