2.7.2011 – Proverbs 7:2,3

Proverbs Post #33-

Today I was reading in chapter 7, and verses 2 & 3 jumped out to me today.  They say:

7:2 Keep my commands so that you may live,
and obey my instruction as your most prized possession.
7:3 Bind them on your forearm; write them on the tablet of your heart.


Are you helping your children memorize scripture? I had a phone call today with a friend that has written a book about the importance of helping our children memorize God’s word.  He has a method to assist parents in this task that is difficult but so very important!

 As I was reading today, I was convicted by verse 3. (I included verse 2 for context) Have I bound God’s word on my forearm?  How much of God’s word is written on the tablet of my heart?  I was convicted today that parenting is mostly about the parents and not the kids!  We are responsible to them to help give them a Godly foundation to live their lives on.

 Are you helping your kids write God’s word on the tablet of their heart?  

I want to challenge you to take up reading the Proverb of the day and the entire chapter as well.  Lord, please help each one of us to keep our focus on things above and not the things of this earth.  Amen.

I am using the Net Bible to quote from for these posts
