I teach a Sunday-school class at our church, and we are currently studying the book of Proverbs. The other week, we were studying the first half of Proverbs 6, perhaps one of the most practical sections of the entire book.

Editor's note: This article has been revised to reflect the following correction, which will appear in Wednesday's print edition. Liberty Regional Medical Center communications officer Rene Harwell confirmed Friday that Scott Kroell had retired as the hospital's CEO after 21 years and said Donna Cochrane, the hospital's chief nursing officer, had been named interim CEO. An article that appeared in Sunday's edition incorrectly characterized her response to the Coastal Courier, making it appear - inaccurately - that she had evaded the reporter's question. The Courier regrets the error.
