So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.
--2 Thessalonians 2:15
Eternal God, help me that I may not be deceived by my surroundings as I seek to have life abundantly. Instruct me that it is by the way of character that I must attain the laws of growth, and learn reverence for the spirit of divine life. Amen.
