Franklin’s wisdom for US: God judges us on the goodness in our actions to others.
Doing good for others is necessary for a thriving democracy and our happiness. For as Franklin also stated, “only a virtuous people are capable of freedom” and “without virtue man can have no happiness in this world.”
The goodness we do for others is also how we will be judged by God.
Franklin’s call to action for US: Do all the goodness we can, in all the ways we can, for all the people we can.

“And the Scripture assures me, that at the last day, we shall not be examined what we thought, but what we did; and our recommendation will not be that we said Lord, Lord, but that we did GOOD to our fellow creatures.”
