When Reading Proverbs Remember...

Proverbs is such a great book in the Bible for a parent to read no matter the age of your child, from baby to adult. Every time I read Proverbs I am helped with further wisdom and insight in how to live my life and how to improve as a parent.

Here are so things when reading Proverbs to remember...

1. ...who it is written to.
"To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion." Proverbs 1:4 KJV
Proverbs are written to the young men of Israel. Today I am living in a different administration as a born again child of God. In the New Testament we have even more wonderful truths about wisdom. Keeping this in mind, I can still gain great knowledge, wisdom and insight from reading Proverbs.

The LORD Gives Wisdom

My daughters watch me talk to my phone and ask for directions while driving. A mysterious robot woman (Siri) always has the answers.  

When they ask a question like "Can worms see underground?", my daughters see me type the question into Google. Up pops a long list of answers.

This Spring I have been considering the question "How do I prepare my children for a future filled with technology?" I want my daughters to know that true wisdom and knowledge come from God. Not Google and not Siri.

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction." Proverbs 1:7 KJV
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and knowledge of the holy is understanding." Proverbs 9:10 KJV
