47. The Master said, “There are three types of public service that recognize and requite the tremendous grace of the Fourfold Grace: education, edification, and charity. After receiving an education, you should teach your juniors, edify your neighbors, and render widely compassion and good deeds, thus simultaneously practicing education, edification, and charity. These three things are not only the three missions of our Order, but also the three essential conditions of public service throughout eternity for us workers in the Way of public-spiritedness.”
