This is the third in a series of Christian adaptations of the Tao Te Ching (yes, the chapters are out of order). See the first chapter here.

The kingdom of God is like water.
Water benefits all things without effort,
But resides in the lowest places.
This is why it is like the kingdom of God.
The best houses are the most suitable for the occupants;
The best thoughts come from deep in your soul;
The best actions are gentle and kind;
When in charge, be fair;
When working, be competent.
Always pay attention to the timing of your actions.
If you do not fight, then no one loses.
