“He was the one who prayed to the God of Israel,
‘Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory!
Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!’
And God granted him his request”
“Because of the privilege and authority GOd has given me,
I give each of you this warning: Don’t Think you are better than you really are.
Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves,
measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.”
