Proverbs 1:8-9

LESSON

 

Solomon spoke to his son, guiding him into God’s way. “My son” was and is a customary way of addressing a disciple. “It derives from the idea that parents are primarily responsible for moral Instruction. The frequent recurrence of the phrase “my son” in this part of Proverbs indicates that the instruction specially suited a young person. This person’s life lay in front of him, and he faced major decisions that would set the course of his life from then on.

Fortunately, we live under the law of Christ. A time of grace, longsuffering, and mercy. But a time where despising God’s mercy will eventually be called into account. The law of Christ still expects children to respect their parents. To obey and honor them even as Jesus honored His earthly parents
