a prayer for my son, griffin:

proverbs 23:15-19

15 My son, if your heart is wise,
my heart too will be glad.
16 My inmost being* will exult
when your lips speak what is right.
17 Let not your heart envy sinners,
but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day.
18 Surely there is a future,
and your hope will not be cut off.

19 Hear, my son, and be wise,
and direct your heart in the way.

* Hebrew = “my kidneys”
