“I thank God whom I serve with a pure conscience without ceasing day and night. Who hath called us with an holy calling… not according to our works, but according to His purpose.” (2 Tim 3 and 9)
“let my people go that they may serve me” (ex 7:16)
“Mine angel shall go before thee… Ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread and thy water.” ex 23:23

“I withheld not my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced in all my labor” ecclesiastes 2

“God pours the riches of his love into the understanding and affections, giving us strength according to the the day.”
“Christian Science unfolds the hallowed influences of unselfishness, philanthropy, spiritual love…” (462)
