My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck. Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble. When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
We are not to allow sound wisdom and discretion out of our sight. They provide inward vitality, “life unto our soul”, and outward beauty, “grace to thy neck”. They enable us to walk safely in our way and keep us safe along our journey.
