God’s Wisdom in Proverbs for Parents and Children

HPAC Bulletin – 10/10/2021

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

Proverbs 17:6
Children’s children are a crown to the aged,
and parents are the pride of their children.

Proverbs 19:26-27
26 Whoever robs their father and drives out their mother
is a child who brings shame and disgrace.
27 Stop listening to instruction, my son,
and you will stray from the words of knowledge.

Proverbs 22:6
Start children off on the way they should go,
and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

Proverbs 23:22-25
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—
wisdom, instruction and insight as well.
24 The father of a righteous child has great joy;
a man who fathers a wise son rejoices in him.
25 May your father and mother rejoice;
may she who gave you birth be joyful!

Proverbs 29:15-17
15 A rod and a reprimand impart wisdom,
but a child left undisciplined disgraces its mother.
16 When the wicked thrive, so does sin,
but the righteous will see their downfall.
17 Discipline your children, and they will give you peace;
they will bring you the delights you desire.

Ephesians 6:1-4
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise— “so that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.”
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
