Many intelligent men and women deliberately trade the spiritual for the material, the eternal for the temporary. Yet they soon learn that the days of their material existence are temporary. We grow, the days pass over us, and we are gone. To utilize all our power and energy upon material riches is a waste.
You are explicitly instructed to apply your heart toward understanding divine wisdom, have faith in God, and to treat everyone as though they are your family. This is your supreme duty and privilege, to serve God with all your mind and heart, to love your fellow man, to render brotherly service whenever possible, and to submit yourself wholly to the divine will.
