“He who begets a scoffer does so to his sorrow, And the father of a fool has no joy. A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.”
-Children have been commanded to obey their parents which yields long life. The same obedience makes the hearts of our parents joyful & in one way or another also lengthen their days. We read that a wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son brings grief to his mother (Prov 10:1). Like medicine, obedient children cause joy & delight in the hearts of their parents but those who are fond of trouble precipitate pain & stress; which might dry up their bones faster. Further, the father of a righteous child has great joy; a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him (Prov 23:24). In the righteousness of Christ we find favour in God & among men, & His blessings of peace, joy, gladness, grace, wisdom, prosperity, long life & many more; never leave our households to many generations.
In Your presence Lord we dwell secure, fill our hearts with Your love. Help us Jehovah to dwell in righteousness & obedience to You & our parents as You have commanded. Many times we have hardened our hearts, forgive us Father & give us hearts of flesh that we may be willing to partake of Your wisdom & walk upright according to Your will. Bless all our parents with good health, wisdom, grace, peace, long life & fulfil their hearts desires so that their hearts may always be joyful. Remember us Your children Father; & bless us with the dew of heaven, open the storehouse of Your bounty & send rain in our land; & bless the work of our hands for Your blessings add no sorrow. We believe in You Lord & trust in You in all things. Amen
