Thorns and snares are on the path of the crooked; he who would safeguard his life will shun them.
Train a boy in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not swerve from it.
The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender.
He who sows iniquity reaps calamity, and the rod destroys his labors.
Proverbs 22: 5-8
My son has not been going the "way he should go." Yet, I must leave this in God's hands, reluctantly.
I hope someday to kill a fatted calf.
