Proverbs 4:10-12 “Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, and the years of your life will be many. I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble.
Leader, I bless you with being humble enough to discern and follow wise counsel. I bless you with a long, healthy and satisfying life as you pursue wisdom. I bless you with side-stepping the things that will delay your progress, and with a sure footing in times of stress. I bless you with your ethical compass remaining true to God’s principles. I bless you with giving those intent on drawing you into dishonest dealings a wide berth, keeping your eyes fixed on an eternal reward and shunning temporal gratification.
Proverbs 4:13-15 “Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; keep her, for she is your life. Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of evil. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn away from it and pass on.
