I am a very fortunate man. My father gave me excellent advice. I don’t know that he saw that was doing that but he was.
Or maybe he knew what he was doing. Maybe it wasn’t haphazard.
Regardless, his wisdom serves me well. When I heed it, I am successful.
Then, this is the very cool thing. I have a heavenly Father who is amazingly wise. He sent his son Jesus to show me wisdom and does so every day. My earthly father led me to my heavenly Father.
Good friend, follow your father’s good advice;
don’t wander off from your mother’s teachings.
Wrap yourself in them from head to foot;
wear them like a scarf around your neck.
Wherever you walk, they’ll guide you;
whenever you rest, they’ll guard you;
when you wake up, they’ll tell you what’s next.
For sound advice is a beacon,
good teaching is a light,
moral discipline is a life path.
