Word-Filled Wednesday: In A Nutshell

This verse was an absolute favorite of mine for several years, and it popped into my head the other day. It seems like such a wonderful, all-encompassing verse. To me, it's the Christian life "in a nutshell." Follow this advice, and you're good. Yanno?

Thank You, Lord, for reminding me of this wisdom from Your word. Help me to live it. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
