Wise Children = Glad Parents
One of the most rewarding feelings a parent can ever have is to see their children make wise decisions.
Let these verses from the book of Proverbs encourage you toward raising Godly children and developing a home environment that is free from strive and confusion.
Proverbs 10:1 says “Wise children bring joy to their father…” and verse 5 talks about “the blessings of a prudent son…”
Proverbs 23:22-25 is a descriptive passage of the benefits of obedient children.
“22 Listen to your father, who gave you life,
and do not despise your mother when she is old.
23 Buy the truth and do not sell it;
get wisdom, discipline and understanding.
24 The father of a righteous man has great joy;
he who has a wise son delights in him.
25 May your father and mother be glad;
may she who gave you birth rejoice!”
God’s well-ordered plan for our homes is to have children who are obedient and respectful, and, as a result, moms and dads that are joyful and glad.
