My son, keep my words and treasure my commandments within you.
Keep my commandments and live, and my teaching as the apple of your eye.
Bind them on your fingers;
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,” and call understanding your intimate friend; Proverbs 7:1-4
One of my joys as a parent is seeing my kids avoid pitfalls in life and succeeding in becoming the people God wants them to be. Having imparted some of God’s commandments and trying to model them, it gives me great satisfaction to see them embrace them and live in a wise away. I know this will serve them well all their lives.
How about me? Am I following my heavenly Father’s commands? How has my life been blessed accordingly?
God, knowing You and following Your will and ways have changed my life for the better. Thank you that You treat me as Your own and give me the privilege to raise children in Your ways.
