Cheon Seong Gyeong 385

That which is called marriage refers to an appearance of love and at the same time an endowment of the right of creation and the right of dominion. (76-46, 1975.1.26)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1100

No one living on earth until this time has ever seen God’s Day, True Parents’ Day, True Children’s Day, and Day of All True Things. There are 365 days in a year. You should clearly understand that the most important days among all 365 days are those days that I have just mentioned, which have now appeared in providential history. You should know that these days are the king of all days, and if a year like that existed it would be the king of all years. (92-252, 1977.4.18)



2. The Virtues of Industry, Hard Work and Self-Reliance

Let one practice here good industry; let one make the needy prosperous.
    Avesta, Visparad 15.1 (Zoroastrianism)

When the prayer is finished, scatter in the land and seek God’s bounty, and remember God frequently, that you may prosper.
    Qur’an 62.10

Idleness is the enemy of the soul.
    The Benedictine Rule (Christianity)

Go to the ant, O sluggard;
consider her ways, and be wise.
Without having any chief,
officer, or ruler,
she prepares her food in summer,
and gathers her sustenance in harvest.
How long will you lie there, O sluggard?
When will you rise from your sleep?
A little sleep, a little slumber,
a little folding of the hands to rest,
and poverty will come upon you like a vagabond,
and want like an armed man.
    Proverbs 6.6-11

Weeping is not the answer to poverty; a lazy man who is hungry has no one to blame but himself.
There is no place where one cannot achieve greatness; only the lazy prospers nowhere. There is no place that does not suit me, O Divinity!
    Yoruba Proverbs (African Traditional Religion)

He who says, “It is too hot, too cold, too late!”
Leaving the waiting work unfinished still,
Lets pass all opportunities for good.
But he who reckons heat and cold as straws
And like a man does all that’s to be done,
He never falls away from happiness.
    Digha Nikaya 3.185 (Buddhism)

Life is sweet for the self-reliant worker.
    Ecclesiasticus 40.18 (Christianity)

When you eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
    Psalm 128.2

We were not idle when we were with you, we did not eat anyone’s bread without paying, but with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not burden any of you. It was not because we have not that right, but to give you in our conduct an example to imitate. For even when we were with you, we gave you this command: If any one will not work, let him not eat. For we hear that some of you are living in idleness, mere busybodies, not doing any work. Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work in quietness and to earn their own living.
    2 Thessalonians 3.8-12

The little that one produces [oneself] with a broken hoe is better than the plenty that another gives you.
    Buji Proverb (African Traditional Religion)

One who claims to be a saint
And goes about begging—
Touch not his feet!
He whose livelihood is earned through work,
And part given away in charity—
Such a one, Nanak, truly knows the way to God.
    Adi Granth, Var Sarang, M.1, p. 1245 (Sikhism)

The person who extends a loan to the needy is greater than the one who gives charity, and one who associates a poor person with him in business enabling him to earn for himself is greater than all the others.
    Talmud, Shabbat 63a (Judaism)

A clansman has wealth acquired by energetic striving, amassed by strength of arm, won by sweat, lawful and lawfully gotten. At the thought, “Wealth is mine acquired by energetic striving, amassed by strength of arm, won by sweat, lawful and lawfully gotten,” bliss comes to him, satisfaction comes to him. This is called “the bliss of ownership.”
A clansman by means of wealth acquired by energetic striving… both enjoys his wealth and does meritorious deeds therewith. At the thought, “By means of wealth acquired… I both enjoy my wealth and do meritorious deeds,” bliss comes to him, satisfaction comes to him. This is called “the bliss of wealth.”
    Anguttara Nikaya 2.68 (Buddhism)
