Proverbs 4:18-27 NCV

18 The way of the good person is like the light of dawn, growing brighter and brighter until full daylight.
19 But the wicked walk around in the dark; they can't even see what makes them stumble.
20 My child, pay attention to my words; listen closely to what I say.
21 Don't ever forget my words; keep them always in mind.
22 They are the key to life for those who find them; they bring health to the whole body.
23 Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.
24 Don't use your mouth to tell lies; don't ever say things that are not true.
25 Keep your eyes focused on what is right, and look straight ahead to what is good.
26 Be careful what you do, and always do what is right.
27 Don't turn off the road of goodness; keep away from evil paths.
