 1 Corinthians 10:31. Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. Romans 11:36. For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

My flesh and my heart faileth: but God isthe strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. John 17:22, 24.
