speak to all those who read,
all those who hear,
all those who would take notice of the saying of The Lord.
Life is to be highly valued by the lifestyles of man.
The opportunities of life bring either growth or stunting to the life of man.
The opportunities of life bring decisions at the turning points within the life events of man.
Man should consider thoroughly the portent of the decisions made at the turning points encountered within
the life events of man.
For turning point decisions cannot be erased,
cannot be denied,
cannot be ignored by man.
Turning point decisions should be recognized and subjected to wise counselling.
Man should not access man’s knowledge for wisdom is required.
The wisdom of counsellors is appropriate to assess,
prior to a decision at a turning point,
the life events of man.
They who rush headlong past each turning point do threaten the future happiness and destinations of those lives.
Wise indeed are they who approach a turning point with caution and trepidation –
to examine from all perspectives –
a signpost placed so carefully at a crossroad that can change the life events of man.
For the future life events of man are modified,
depending on the choice established at each turning point encountered.
Safe are they who so decide with moral principles fixed firmly in their minds:
for the morality of man issues from the wisdom of God.
The morality of man is absolute,
stands as given throughout the mortality of man,
stands as received without addition or revision.
Unwise are they who follow man’s school of ethics –
that are both relative and established by perception.
For the ethics of man will always fail in the hour of need:
will always be found at variance and needing adaptation,
are not universal in extent,
are dependent on the culture of each nation,
each isolated people.
The ethics of man are changed:
by the speech of the eloquent,
on the decrees of those empowered,
by the tumult of the voices expressing opinions from the gatherings of man.
should establish his chain of life events resulting from decisions in alignment with what is already written:
‘Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things [are] noble, whatever things [are] just, whatever things [are] pure, whatever things [are] lovely, whatever things [are] of good report, if [there is] any virtue and if [there is] anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things.’
For in acceptance of this counsel,
in living by this counsel,
in practising this counsel –
will man’s soul be nurtured and corrected,
will man’s spirit call in faith,
will man’s development be not stunted,
will man’s potential be attained,
will man receive acknowledgment of his spirit’s call –
will man therein achieve his life of immortality in the presence of his God.”
