  It is impossible to estimate the power of influence. The Bible and other sources are filled with information on how to succeed in every aspect of our lives. 

Here are some powerful quotes to aid us in the development of our character.

  • “Commit your way unto the Lord, trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” Psalm 37:5
  • “You shall eat the labour of your hands; happy shall you be. And it shall be well with you.” (Psalm 128:2)   when you cry unto God most high; unto God that performs all things for you.” (Psalm 57:2)

Destruction of Jerusalem

The first temple had been erected during the most prosperous period of Israel's history. Vast stores of treasure for this purpose had been collected by King David, and the plans for its construction were made by divine inspiration.
