8. Looking carefully – “Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright” (Heb. 12:15-16)

The safeguard here is looking carefully to your spiritual affairs (2 Pet. 1:5-11)
