A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the
simple pass on and are punished. -- Proverbs 22:3
And we know that all things work together for good to those
who love God, to those who are the called according to His
purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be
conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the
firstborn among many brethren.
-- Romans 8:28-29
Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that
thy profiting may appear to all. -- I Timothy 4:15
