See to it brothers and sisters, that non of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. (Heb 3:12)

For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction. (Ps 1:6)

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. (Ps 46:1)
