A wise son makes a father glad, But a foolish man despises his mother

(Proverbs 15:20, NKJV). A child is precious to loving parents. Sometimes, however, the parents are not wise in the life they have chosen to live. This passes to the child. The apple does not fall far from the tree it is said. If the parents are wise, then it is only natural that the child (children) will gain the parent’s wisdom; what is in the heart/mind of a parent does indeed make its way out, and a child is but a sponge. It is a great blessing for the parents to see the children grow into productive citizens and, more than that, into godly saints. On the other hand, there are some parents who exhibit little wisdom and this lack of wisdom is also soaked up by the child. Wisdom is more than just being a productive citizen in society; wisdom is fear of the Lord. When the parents don’t exhibit such, neither will the child. Foolishness! RT
