Proverbs 1-8

Proverbs 1‑8  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 7
If you have read the book of Proverbs carefully, you have noticed in the first seven chapters that it says over and over again, "My son," "My son," "My son," because the ordinary channel of wisdom for the family is the parent; but when you come to the 8th chapter, "My son" is left out. Why? It is as if God said, "If your parents don't give you wisdom, here it is." Some Christians have unsaved parents, and perhaps your unsaved parents would like you to be president of a bank, or mayor of a city. Well, you ought to honor your father and mother, and you ought to walk in obedience, but when it comes to the voice of wisdom, you hearken to the voice of God. Open your ear to what wisdom has to say.
