The Greatest Goodness

  1. When my parents call me, I will respond right away. When my parents ask me to do something, I will do it promptly.
  2. When my parents try to teach me something, I will listen respectfully. When my parents criticize me, I will accept it respectfully.
  3. What is good for my parents, I will do my best to provide. What is bad for my parents, I will do my best to eliminate.
  4. If my body gets hurt, my parents will worry. If my virtues are bad, my parents will be ashamed.
  5. If my parents have faults, I will encourage them to improve in a warm and gentle manner. If they don’t accept my encouragement, I will try again when they are happy.
