"You cannot be the slave of two masters! You will like one more than the other or be more loyal to one than the other. You cannot serve both God and money." --Jesus
We need not concern ourselves about defending ourselves and our cases; all we have to do is to leave ourselves in God’s hands that He may work His righteous will in us, and our case must stand, no matter what is said and done to overthrow it.
