Jeremiah 22:2-3 says, "I am the Lord, so pay attention! You have
been allowing people to cheat, rob and take advantage of widows, orphans,
and foreigners who live here. Innocent people have become victims of

in Native Ministry, who strive to live right in a fallen world.

1 Timothy 4:9-16 - "Trustworthy is the word, and worthy of all
acceptance. It is for this that we labour and struggle, because we
trust in the living Elohim, who is the Saviour of all man, particularly of
those who believe. Command and teach these matters. Let no one
look down on your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in
behaviour, in love, in spirit, in belief, in cleanliness. Until I come, give
attention to reading of Scripture, to encouragement, to teaching. Do
not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with
the laying on of the hands of the elderhood. Practise these matters, be in
them, so that your progress might be plain to all. Pay attention to yourself
and to the teaching. Continue in them, for in doing this you shall
save both yourself and those who hear you." (The Scriptures)
