Hear, O sons, a father's instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight, for I give you good precepts; do not forsake my teaching. When I was a son with my father, tender, the only one in the sight of my mother, he taught me and said to me, "Let your heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments, and live. (Proverbs 4:1-4)
In verse one we have a father teaching his son about the ways of God. Then in verse 3 the father tells his son that what he is doing is nothing less than what his father did with him. The instruction and wisdom of Proverbs is meant to be transferred from one generation to the next. That is what is happening in Proverbs 4.
What about you? Did you benefit from godly parents who taught you the ways of God? If so this was a great blessing and you should imitate their ways. For others you are no doubt the first believers in your family. Why not start the ball rolling. Teach your children and grandchildren to fear of the Lord. Teach them to teach their children and grandchildren these things. That is one of the goals of the book of Proverbs. Wisdom should continue across the generations.
