Song for Today:
Near the Cross
Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life;
he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin.
Whoever despises the word brings destruction on himself,
but he who reveres the commandment will be rewarded.
The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life,
that one may turn away from the snares of death.
A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children,
The fallow ground of the poor would yield much food,
but it is swept away through injustice.
from Proverbs 13

The sons of Gad…
