April SOAP: Teaching our children wisdom
1. SCRIPTURES: Pro 4
- The beginning of wisdom is to get wisdom. v7
- Paying attention to wisdom is crucial. v1,20
- There's an association of wisdom with righteousness/light and evil with unrighteousness/darkness. v18-19
- Walking wisely is walking righteously/in light. v18
- Godly wisdom doesn't take us into the path of evil. It cannot be said of human wisdom.
- We need to teach children attentiveness so that there's a singleness of heart to lay hold of wisdom
- Life is a journey of decision-making. We need to teach our children to choose life which is to choose Godly wisdom in all they do. v20-23
- And the best teaching method is to MODEL IT OURSELVES
Lord Jesus, mold me to become what you want me to be so that I can model the next generation to become what you want them to be.
