God has created in me a commitment to:
  • Using a gift to show the worth of a person
  • Bringing joy out of sorrow
  • Giving honor to whom honor is due
  • Returning good for evil

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29

I have remembered Thy Name, O LORD, in the night, and have kept Thy Law.
-- Psalm 119:55
