1Listen, my sons,to a father’s instruction;pay attention and gain understanding.2I give you sound learning,so do not forsake my teaching.3For I too was a son to my father,still tender, and cherished by my mother. 4Then he taught me, and he said to me,“Take hold of my words with all your heart;keep my commands, and you will live.

4: 3-4   One of the greatest responsibilities of parents is to encourage their children to become wise. Here Solomon tells how his father, David, encouraged him to seek wisdom when he was young (see 1Kings 2: 1-9 and 1Chronicles 28– 29 for David’s charge to his son). This encouragement may have prompted Solomon to ask God for wisdom above everything else (1Kings 3: 9). Wisdom can be passed on from parents and grandparents to children, from generation to generation. Ultimately, of course, all wisdom comes from God; parents can only urge their children to turn to him. If your parents never taught you in this way, God’s Word can function as a loving and compassionate parent to you. You can learn from the Scriptures and then create a legacy of wisdom as you teach the next generation.
