The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Thirteen: On the Order


The Founding Master said, “In entrusting a person with a great task, there is a principle that Heaven first tests him. Even when regular people hire a laborer for a day or a year, they first check his qualifications and trustworthiness; so how much more should this be the case when entrusting someone with the great enterprise of All under Heaven? Therefore, those who wish to accomplish this great task must obviously be careful first to face this test.”
