“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you crooked speech, and put devious talk far from you. Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure.

“And the twelve gates were twelve pearls, each of the gates made of a single pearl, and the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.

By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory...Read Full Post »

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you.”
Honouring your father and mother is important enough to God that he made it one of the Ten Commandments!
