A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished. -- Proverbs 22:3

And we know that all things work together for good to those who  love God, to those who are the called according to His   purpose. For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be  conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the  firstborn among many brethren.
