OVERINDULGENCE

Proverbs 28:7

 

Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father.

 

 

LESSON

 

The “son” who keeps God’s commandments demonstrates true intelligence, and so gives his father great joy. But the son who demonstrates his disregard for God’s law—by joining other wild, dissolute, and unrestrained people brings him shame. Eli’s carnal sons brought him much shame.

Do you want to make your father happy? Then obey God’s commands and get away from those who play most of the time. A father is shamed when he knows that his son usually wants to play with the boys. A father is honored when he knows that his son values God’s word and sober, diligent living above all else in life. Children, do you hear Solomon? Wise children grow up. Paul.

 

Memory Verse: Isaiah 5:12
