Or those who covet…

Be responsible, whether one hordes or is in debt, See the needs of the poor and hear the cry of the naked, hungry, imprisoned
Be respectful: We live in a society, where Capitalism reigns and profits are made at someone else’s loss. It is not a penalty to be wealthy, but it our m
Be resolved to live above the minimum payment.
