Receiving Back a Better You

The Bible bursts with passages verifying the truth: When we follow Jesus, He gives us back a better you. Here are few such passages in only the book of Proverbs.
My son, hear the instruction of your father…for they will be a graceful ornament on your head, and chains about your neck. (1:8-9.)
Whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil. (1:33.)
Receive my words, and treasure my commands within you…for the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding…He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints. (2:1, 6-8.)
Let your heart keep my commands; for length of days and long life and peace they will add to you. (3:1-2.)
The Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught. (3:26.)
Keep my commands, and live. (4:4.)
For the commandment is a lamp, and the law a light. (6:23.)
Blessed are those who keep my ways… blessed is the man who listens to me…for whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from the Lord; but he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; all those who hate me love death. (8:32-36.)
