When I sew, I use special feet on my machine to ensure the desired results. My 1/4 inch foot helps me keep my seam exactly at 1/4 inch width. The button hole foot delivers a perfect button hole every time. The button foot enables me to sew a button on in exactly the right place with ease.
What do you have in your life that helps keep you on track, ensuring a good outcome every time?
Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.Psalm 1:1-3
I think this might be the safeguard we are looking for…don’t make fools your closest advisors, surround yourself with wise people and delight in the Word of the Lord.
