I don’t know who wrote the rules above. There must be a good basis for it. I think it best to see what is written in the Bible about it. If it is good, do it. If it is right, and good, hurry and do it!2-timothy-3_16-17.jpg

  • DO ALL THE GOOD YOU CAN – Do anything that is good – as long as it is good. I guess it has to start with having the desire to do it, and learning how. Doing good is also doing what is right.

    Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.
