Love the Lord, all you his saints. The Lord preserves the faithful but abundantly repays the one who acts haughtily.

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress.
…for the Lord does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.
1 Samuel 16:7b
And the world and its desires are passing away, but those who do the will of God live forever.
1 John 2:17
