"My son,seek wisdom....." is a dominant theme in the Book of Proverbs. I wish every boy and young man would read it--what an impact it would have on our world today!

There was a day when loving parents
taught their children to follow the Lord.
They taught them discretion, justice and love,
and the value of wisdom in God's Word.

Evil days grow worse and parents fail
to give their children God's admonition.
Thought it cost all that you may possess,
wisdom will save you from perdition.

 

My son, do not forget My teaching,
but keep My commands as I have taught.
If you are seeking authentic answers,
My Word holds the wisdom you have sought.

 

If you accept each word as true , and
hunger for insights into My ways,
You'll be a man of great understanding
and walk in wisdom all of your days.


"Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding:
in all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He will make your paths straight."

(Proverbs 3:5 & 6 NIV)

Wisdom is the treasure that is more valuable than gold or jewels. Well said, Connie.

This is a truthful and honest poem, and it has been proven in many children who have been molded by the Word of God. Children like clay need to be trained early so when they grow up they have wisdom. You wrote this so well, Connie!

What a beautiful lesson taught. I have instilled the word of the Lord into my own sons. My wife and I give thanks to the Lord every day for the love he has bestowed upon them. I agree with you that it would be a good read for all young men and women alike. May God bless you every day of your life.

SO TRUE...AND AS ONE WHO FAILED MISERABLY IN THE ROLE OF PARENTING...I CAN PERSONALLY ATTEST THAT IF ONE EXPOSES THEIR CHILDREN TO THE WORD OF GOD, IT CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD.

Well done!

I liked this part the best:

My son, do not forget My teaching,
but keep My commands as I have taught.
If you are seeking for life's answers,
My Word holds the wisdom you have sought.

This is wisdom that is timeless...

May we all grow to learn His ways.

Amen

Parents need to start being parents again .... And discipline/prayer needs to be brought back into the homes and schools; no wonder kids (and everyone else) are so messed up! God help us ALL!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :(
