Hold fast to instruction and never let her go; guard her carefully, for she is your life.  – Prov 4:13

Reflection.  Sometimes our parents and close friends see warning flags before we do.  You may have to lead your own life, but the insights of others can protect you from making foolish mistakes in judgment.  Try to be more objective.  Go for help.

Prayer.  Lord, when a big decision is involved, help me to listen to good advice.
