Proverbs: Wisdom for Life's Journey 4
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. There isn’t anything that we could pass on to our children greater than to teach them to honor God. Solomon, as a young child, received instruction from his father to seek after wisdom. He was exhorted to let his heart retain the words of God. Solomon greatly benefited from the instruction of his father. Our children and Grandchildren can greatly benefit from the influence we have with them if we are careful to speak the truth to them.
The wisdom that comes from God’s Word can have such an impact on a young persons life. We are to encourage others to keep God’s word in their heart for out of it flows the issues of life. Proverbs are truths from God that serve as guardrails for our life. Staying in God’s word each day is our bridge over troubled waters and keeps us on the good paths of life.
