神賜智慧、知識、喜樂給良善的人。God gives wisdom, knowledge, joy to the good.
別想從生活中得到喜樂。向神求喜樂。Don’t look for joy from life. Look for joy from God.
別想從生活中得到滿足。向神求滿足。Don’t look for satisfaction from life. Look for satisfaction from God.
Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.

THE TREASURE OF LIFE
The treasure of heaven is comprised of Sun, Moon and Stars;
The treasure of earth consists of crops, gold and silver.
The treasure of a kingdom is to have righteous officials;
The treasure of a family is to have descendents with piety.
Yet, Gold, silver and jade are not as precious as one’s life.
Hundred years of age is nothing compared to eternity.
Coming and going in life is like a dream.
The best food and clothing don’t mean a thing.
It’s no exception for someone born in a royal family.
The most important thing in the world is life–
Something that white jade, gold and silver can’t buy.
Even plain porridge can be satisfying;
No cloth is fit to wear for a thousand years.
The heaven’s gate was closed due to the first man’s sin;
The path to salvation is through the Son only.
I would like to accept God’s Holy Son;
And receive with the status of son eternal life.
