Never undertake anything for which you wouldn't have the courage to ask the blessings of heaven.
There are many locks in my house and all with different keys, but I have one master-key which opens them all. The Lord has many treasures and secrets all shut up from carnal minds with locks which they cannot open. But he who walks in fellowship with Jesus possesses the master-key which will open to him all the blessings of the covenant and even the very heart of God.

Make no mistake about it, responsibilities toward other human beings are the greatest blessings God can send us.
