This begins my summer walk through of Proverbs. I'm not following any plans and I'm beginning in chapter 10. I may go back to 1-9 if I have time at the end.
The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son grief to his mother.
I can observe the truth of this passage in my own family. When someone is acting foolish - the grief my parents feel. With seven siblings, there are ample supply for each to act foolishly. some are foolish and can never seem to get life right, since they do not know the wisdom of God. They pursue their own pleasure over real pleasure of God. Others have gained some wisdom and bring comfort. In times of turmoil, I am the one my mother usually calls for comfort. Not that I am perfect, as I have written about that many times, but it is my firm stance in Christ that comforts her. God has granted me wisdom to help her in her walk with Him, in that I am blessed.
