A Verse: Virtue and Purity

Updated on August 21, 2012
"Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this.... ." (James 1:27)
"Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this.... ." (James 1:27) | Source

The reward is peace of conscience...

With virtue pure,

I lie at rest in peace.

Slander has no painful sting.

      Someone, I forget who (perhaps in Proverbs) said "Virtue is its own reward."
