Every man’s way is right in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs the hearts.

This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger;

VerseD: Colossians 3:15

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
