The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction. My son, hear the instruction of your father, And do not forsake the law of your mother; For they will be a graceful ornament on your head, And chains about your neck. My son, if sinners entice you, Do not consent.
-The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge but fools despise wisdom and instructions. This is a common verse that should define the moral standing of each individual. Temptations ordinarily come in the most enticing ways to deviate us from the path of light. Sometimes it comes through friends who propose immoral ideas or act in bad character to corrupt good morals (1 Cor 15:33). God reminds us to remain rooted in His word and revoke any such ways of foolishness. To cloth ourselves with wisdom as represented by precious ornaments in the form of chains and crowns; in the quest to seek truth through Christ Jesus. The fear of the Lord has been delineated by the love of God and neighbours as is His will. It is through the same love that we are called to honour our fathers and mothers that we may live long on earth. God is love and as His children; we are called to love.
May Your wisdom and love Holy Spirit become the most precious ornaments that You cloth us with, so that we may never depart from Your ways. Help us to always be obedient to Your word and to follow Your path of righteousness. Guide us as we hear from You even through our parents advise. Bless our parents and renew their strength Father so that they may always be in good health, wealth, wisdom, love, joy and peace as they age gracefully. Our Father who at in heaven hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from all evil. For thine is the kingdom the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen
