The most perfect thing

To do good is better than keeping the Sabbath because Jesus said, "Therefore, it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath."

To love God is better than being religious because Jesus said, "The first and greatest commandment is to love God ".

Brethren, religious piety is no substitute for doing good and loving God.

Many they are who follow after religion without either doing good nor getting alone in secret with God in the warm hearted bond of love, referred to by Paul as the bond of perfection.

The most perfect thing you can do it to love.

The second, is to abound in good works.

Many religious people don't do either one.

This is a shame in both the eyes of man and the Eyes of God.

Let your good works so abound so that men will glorify God.
