When Invitations Come Your Way (Proverbs 1:8-19)

Listen to what your father taught;

and don’t reject your ma.

They gave you precious ornaments,

so show them off to all.

—–

When invitations come your way 

to join in evil schemes,

scoundrels will promise wealth untold 

beyond what you could dream. 

—–

This time they’re fleecing someone else

but next time they’ll rob you. 

Greed is a trap that pays you back. 

Take care in all you do.
