Proverbs 3:1-10

1 Good friend, don't forget all I've taught you; take to heart my commands.
2 They'll help you live a long, long time, a long life lived full and well.
3 Don't lose your grip on Love and Loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart.
4 Earn a reputation for living well in God's eyes and the eyes of the people.
5 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own.
6 Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track.
7 Don't assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil!
8 Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life!
9 Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best.
10 Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over.
