4 My father taught me, “Take my words to heart. Follow my commands, and you will live. 5 Get wisdom; develop good judgment. Don’t forget my words or turn away from them. 6 Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you. 7 Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment. 8 If you prize wisdom, she will make you great. Embrace her, and she will honor you. 9 She will place a lovely wreath on your head; she will present you with a beautiful crown.”
It is of utmost importance that a father knows wisdom. We must possess godly wisdom if we want our children to walk in the right path. When I read this Proverb this morning, I realized the importance of obeying God’s word. For me to give wise instruction, I must be walking with the Lord myself. If I want my children to be wise, I must be the first to embrace wisdom.
