Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is life. Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way. For they cannot sleep till they make someone fall. (Proverbs 4:13-16 NIV) Forward Friday!
