"A good name is more desirable than great riches;                             
To be esteemed is better than silver or gold.  Rich                            
and poor have this in common:  the Lord is the                                 
Maker of them all.                                                             
                                                                               
A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but                               
the simple keep going and suffer for it.                                       
                                                                               
Humility and the fear of the Lord bring wealth and                            
honor and life."                                                               
                                                                               
Dear God,                                                                     
                                                                               
I thank You that You are the giver and organizer of                           
life.  Give us wisdom and prudence as we address
