Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint,
but blessed is he who keeps the law.
One’s pride will bring him low, but he who is lowly in spirit will obtain honor.
The fear of man lays a snare,
but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe.
Many seek the face of a ruler, but it is from the Lord that a man gets justice. (Proverbs 29:18, 23, 25, 26 ESV)
There is a hope based in truth that is good. Any hope that rests in people will disappoint and discourage. Hope in the Lord never disappoints.
