    We need to gird ourselves with the grid of the Word of God. Please impose that grid on us Lord. May the words of Psalm 19 be constantly on our mind.

    What a beautiful poetic statement. I think this also touches upon the subject of consent, respect and acceptance as well. I think kindness and understanding is very attractive to see in a person.
