“The Lord’s Promise To A Godly Man”

            Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in His ways.

               You will eat the fruit of your labor, blessings and prosperity will be yours.

               Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table.

               Thus is the man blessed who fears the Lord.

                                      Psalm 128:1-4
