The Proverbs is a display of commonsense all through. It is about life and about how to live it sensibly. Wisdom and Folly are compared. Solomon says that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Why? It is because God, created the whole world, is the wisest, the greatest. People who put their trust in Him never regret. They prosper in whatever they do. The “Proverbs” is the necessary drug for the fever or migraine of youths which they must take at all times. We all should read and digest the book, too.
“Proverbs” was written for a male-dominated society. In ancient Israel, women and children were not counted though the women are given honour and respect as the mothers of the nation. In our country, too, the place of women in character moulding cannot be over-emphasized. Women are more at home in training the children than men who are always busy gathering the naira and kobo for use in the home. However, the father and the mother must join hands firmly in training their children in the way of the Lord. To either leave it only for the father or the mother may, in the end, be counter-productive.
Solomon admonishes us that in training the child (son and daughter) the first step to take is to instill the fear of the Lord. Reverence Him in all your ways. God is the author of wisdom, knowledge and understanding. When you acknowledge God, you are already on the right path to greatness. God cares for those who acknowledge and put their trust in him.
Like the author, we, too, must train our children. Speak to them with your eyelids, your fingers, your feet and body movement. Let your children know what it means when you cough or wink in public. Parents who fail to train their children in the right way will regret in the end.
Proverbs 3:6 “In all your ways, acknowledge God and He shall direct your paths.”
Eternal Rock of Ages, teach us to teach our children Your commands, laws, ways and precepts in order to make them fit for Thy heavenly habitation because we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. Amen.
