The life style of good people is like sunlight at dawn that keeps getting brighter until broad daylight. The life style of the wicked is like total darkness, and they will never know what makes them stumble.
My child, listen carefully to everything I say. Don’t forget a single word, but think about it all. Knowing these teachings will mean true life and good health for you. Carefully guard your thoughts because they are the source of true life.
Never tell lies or be deceitful in what you say. Keep looking straight ahead, without turning aside. Know where you are heading for, and you will stay on solid ground. Don’t make a mistake by turning to the right or the left.
Proverbs 4: 18-27
