“Charity never humiliated him who profited from it, nor ever bound him by the chains of gratitude, since it was not to him but to God that the gift was made.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery I’ve noticed a strange thing. People pray and pray for God to bless them, send them good fortune, and make their…

“The men and women who practice the foregoing instructions will certainly get and stay forever rich in all areas. In this process, we must stay conscious to that fact that any form of wealth received will be in exact proportion to the definiteness (solidification) of our vision, the fixity (strength, stability) of our purpose, the…
