    Proverbs 4:1 – 27 instructs us to follow rightousness and avoide wickedness 4:27-30 continues with a warning to avoid unneighborliness. If only all would read a obey prayers for pease would not be needed. But until then let us all pray that those who do not know hear the word and those that hear lead by example. ( A light on a hill can not be hid)
