Message of the Day: Teach the Children the Value of Goodness and Wisdom.
“The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice,
And he who begets a wise child will delight in him.” (Proverbs 23:24, NKJV)
Proverbs 23 reminds the readers to not wear yourself out to get rich; listen your father and mother; let them rejoice in you when they are old; do not withhold discipline from a child; listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old; and finally, a rather humorous description of the effects of too much drink (vv. 29–35).
Teach children to respect their parents. If from an early age they are taught the value of goodness and wisdom, they will bring joy to their parents in later life.
