Parenting wisdom from a book written thousands of years ago

It has been a joyous journey this past year as a first time father. The joy of being there for John’s first steps and tumbles, first word, first crawl and other precious moment in life is worth every ounce of energy.

King Solomon was said to be the wisest man at his time. He wrote most of Proverbs (Bible book of Proverbs) and here are 3 verses for sharing:

Proverbs 10:1. The proverbs of Solomon: A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son grief to his mother.

Proverbs 15:20; A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish man despises his mother.

Proverbs 22:6. Train-up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

Although these were written 2000 years ago, they still remain relevant today.

Happy Father's Day! :)
