People Should Place the Public Good Ahead of Self-Interest

Cheon Seong Gyeong 565

You should think that you might possibly die soon, perhaps within a year. Therefore, you should make all preparations during this short time. You should live with such thoughts. The shorter the time you think you have, the happier you will be, and the less you have to lose. Your sincere preparations during this time become the building blocks of your home for your eternal life. Have you ever loved God with such a short time in mind? You want to become one with Him and love Him, but you can not. God says to you, “Love Me!” If you die after having lived this way, then you will become the master of eternal life.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 570

The path connecting God’s Kingdom on earth with His kingdom in heaven is the path of true love. Consequently, the path an individual takes and the path a family takes should all be connected and their directions consistent with each other.
    Therefore, everything a person does in his lifetime is permanently fastened to his rear end as a record of his performances done for the sake of true love. Thus, when a person goes to the spirit world, he naturally comes to dwell at the level corresponding to the meritorious achievements he left behind in his lifetime. (211-287, 1990.12.30

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Moral education teaches the norm that people should place the public good ahead of self-interest. (24:212, August 17, 1969)
 
All people live with a desire for goodness. Therefore education should teach: “Before you love God, you must love human beings.” “Live for all humankind.” “Love people and live for their sake.” “You were born for the sake of others, not for yourself.” (64:20, October 22, 1972)
