And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough [plow], and looking [if he looks WU] back, is fit for the kingdom of God. Lk 9:62 (Click gold Scripture references for Principle Interrelations)

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. And if thy right eye offend thee [causes you to sin WU], pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable [better WU] for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. Mat 5:27-29.

But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yea, yea [yes]; Nay, nay [no]: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil [from the evil one WU]. Mat 5:34-37

Take heed that ye do not your alms [charitable giving] before men, to be seen of [by] them: otherwise ye have no reward of [from] your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms [merciful deeds], do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of  [from] men. Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms [merciful deeds], let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of [by] men. Verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. Mat 6:1-6

For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. And when he had agreed with the labourers for [to pay WU] a penny [denarius] a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire [wages], beginning from the last unto the first. And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny [denarius]. And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman [owner WU] of the house [land WU], Saying, These last have wrought [worked WU] but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? Take that [which] thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do what I will [want] with mine own? Is thine eye evil [are you envious WU], because I am good [generous WU]? So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Mat 20:1-16 We ought to appreciate that God is generous to others; He is generous to us too.
