117. Setting a Good Example with Upright Behavior and Speech
1 After you finish the Chinese Quiet Sitting Class, add quiet sitting [the fifth cardinal discipline] to the four cardinal disciplines every day. Reflect and repent every day and night by checking against the two Watchwords you have chosen.
2 The Lord of Universe Church advocates “action.” For thousands of years, every Chinese knew about “the five bonds of human relationships and the eight cardinal virtues.” The reason why the world has fallen is because people chose not to follow them, although they understand them. I hope our strivers will practice them.
3 The Lord of Universe Church has always been emphasizing the cultivation of righteous qi. Righteous qi comes from reflection and repentance, and from making corrections and doing good deeds. I hope our strivers will set a good example for others.
4 The preaching development of the Lord of Universe Church, and the faith and devotion that strivers have to the Church are not bestowed by God. They are cultivated by fellow strivers. Everyone needs to have righteous qi and lead the society by personal examples. This action will draw persons of affinity to come and join us.
4 天帝教的弘教發展與同奮對天帝教的信心與向心力，不是 上帝賜給我們的，而是教徒同奮自己培養出來的。大家要有正氣，做社會榜樣，自然原人都會來參加。
