How Can a Young Man Keep His Ways Pure?

“How Can a Young Man Keep His Way Pure?”
By King David
“How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart. Do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Praise be to you, O Lord; teach me your decrees. With my lips, I recount a the laws that come from your mouth. I rejoice in following you statutes as one rejoices in great riches. I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees. I will not neglect your word. ”
Psalms 119:9-16

I was going through my computer today, and I found this. I wrote it a few years ago for a writing class.  This was one of many files they could choose from to get their brains in gear so they could write.  I was allowed to include Christian topics because I was teaching at a Christian university.  After this, I would follow up with a choice of writing assignments.  I took the writing assignments off for you because I am not your writing teacher, but I thought it was topic worth thinking about.  If you want to stay pure, how can you?  Think about the answers to the questions.
