The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. – Psalm 28:7
8)) My child, LISTEN when your father corrects you.
DON’T NEGLECT your mother’s instruction.
9)) WHAT YOU LEARN FROM THEM WILL crown you with grace
and be a chain of honor around your neck.
Verses 8-9 are pretty straight forward. They remind us that our main “earthly” source of direction, guidance, and instruction is from our parents. Following their “godly” teaching will develop godly character in us. God’s character will be reflected, and noticed by others around us.
One thought on “What’s Our Source of Direction, Guidance, and Instruction? – PROVERBS – Chapter 1b – 1:8-9 – ”
Very straightfwd! I like how you tie learning from parents to grace.
