The book contains most of the ‘My Son’ passages from the Book of Proverbs arranged as life lessons from A to Z.
Inspired by the Spirit of God, King Solomon committed to pass on what he learned to the next generation. So growing up, my mother highlighted in my Bible these verses; and while the idea was to return me to the Bible, her intent and the message left a deep impact. Words of wisdom indeed!
I have learned life lessons from these verses; verses I have found to be a dependable foundation for all my decisions and living. I hope to return the favour by passing on the legacy of learning and wisdom as my son turns 18.
Whatever the relationship, teacher-student; mentor-mentee; elder-disciple; parent-child, these lessons are applicable. Neither are they limited to ‘sons’; and why not, you can even gift yourself with these timeless lessons.
Even as men and women have found solace, guidance, and wisdom, through centuries, I pray that generations of men and women would benefit from the words of Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived; and more importantly that they would learn from the heart of our Lord Jesus Christ– the only wise God, to whom be honour and glory forever and ever.
