Proverbs 4:4-14 NLT

4 My father told me, "Take my words to heart. Follow my instructions and you will live.
5 Learn to be wise, and develop good judgment. Don't forget or turn away from my words.
6 Don't turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you.
7 Getting wisdom is the most important thing you can do! And whatever else you do, get good judgment.
8 If you prize wisdom, she will exalt you. Embrace her and she will honor you.
9 She will place a lovely wreath on your head; she will present you with a beautiful crown."
10 My child, a listen to me and do as I say, and you will have a long, good life.
