10-15Dear friend, take my advice;it will add years to your life.I’m writing out clear directions to Wisdom Way,I’m drawing a map to Righteous Road.I don’t want you ending up in blind alleys,or wasting time making wrong turns.Hold tight to good advice; don’t relax your grip.Guard it well—your life is at stake!Don’t take Wicked Bypass;don’t so much as set foot on that road.Stay clear of it; give it a wide berth.Make a detour and be on your way.

Read Proverbs 4
