Teach Wisdom

 

I read someplace that we’re failing to teach our children wisdom. What wisdom have you passed on to the next generation?

 

  • Actions have unintended consequences
  • The end does not justify the means
  • Good intentions don’t justify a bad outcome

Proverbs 9:10 (NIV)
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.

 “Fear of the Lord,” not as in fear that he will strike me with a thunderbolt and turn me into a pile of ashes.

Fear of disappointing him.
Fear of messing up his good plan for me.
Fear of making others think less of God.

Good fear. Teach it.
