The Bible is full of wisdom for our families. So where do we start?
The book of Proverbs offers an excellent source of wisdom and a great way to get your kids involved in the reading of Scripture!
The Beginning of Wisdom
In the Bible, the book of Proverbs is full of wisdom that our kids would do well to know by heart; especially living in the entertainment-saturated world that we’re immersed in today. And we shouldn’t think that this is an impossible task, considering that many Jewish kids can memorize virtually the entire Old Testament!
Why? Because it’s required. If our kids read just one chapter of Proverbs a day for a year, they could read the whole book of Proverbs 12 times a year. I can’t stress enough the invaluable benefits that Proverbs alone can bring to its readers. Remember, most of Proverbs was written by King Solomon, a man who many consider the wisest man who ever lived.
