A servant is not ranked above his master; an employee doesn’t give orders to the employer. If you understand what I’m telling you, act like it—and live a blessed life.  John 13:13-17 The Message

I Peter 4: 12-14

 

The Lord is close to whose hearts are broken. He will rescue those who are crushed in spirit.  Psalm 34:18
