If you’re gathering honey, you are careful around the beehive and you don’t stir up the bees. If you want a pleasant and good life, you carefully live by the principles of God; they won’t let you down.

You will follow the right leader because you will listen to those with wholesome values and morals. Like a magnet attracting iron, you will attract treasures for the soul because the elements of God’s principles are at work in you.
