    There is an empty world in our words to one another,vanity on display.A world of spiritual poor and needy vs. prideful predators who are gods unto themselves.Almighty God is present and not without a plan which will glorify himself.Where believers fall short,God is there to help,to accomplish his will be done.Despite wicked on every side,God is faithful to preserve/protect his people.Trust in God.

    I think this verse of scripture helps us every woman, man, girl or boy to realize that as The Lord spoke pure words continues to speak pure words, we should do the the same.
