Proverbs 4:10-13 (NKJV) 10 Hear, my son, and receive my sayings, And the years of your life will be many. 11 I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. 12 When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, And when you run, you will not stumble. 13 Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; Keep her, for she is your life.
These are sound advice from a mother or father to a son. They are words of wisdom worthy for a son to pass down to his own son. A clean life generally is favorable for a long life. Every young person should learn from the wisdom of their godly parents. For sound advice and instruction from godly parents are some of the best guidance for life young people can receive. Young people, learn all you can learn from your godly parents. Parents teach your children all that you can about wisdom and be a good example of it. For actions speaks louder than words. Young people know that your parents are not trying to crush your dreams or take away your goals in life. Know that they want to help you achieve them, for they are gratified when they have taught you well and you act upon what you have learned to better your life. For young people who walk in the right paths will walk unimpeded and will run without stumbling. Because God will guide you step-by-step when you are moving forward for Him. Therefore, young people take a firm hold of good instruction from your godly parents, and not let it slip from you. And guard it as you would guard your life. Because godly wisdom is your life, especially when we think of Wisdom Incarnate in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption” (1 Corinthians 1:30 NKJV). For you see, the Lord Jesus Christ is everything that we need. Christ has been made to us Wisdom. He is our righteousness. He is our sanctification and our redemption. Whatever it is that you need today, you will find it in the Lord Jesus Christ. For all we are and have comes from God.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
