Get all of the advice and instruction you can, and be wise the rest of your life.
You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.
Fear of the Lord gives life, security, and protection from harm.
If you stop listening to instruction, my child, you have turned your back on knowledge.
Though good advice lies deep within a person’s heart, the wise will draw it out.
