The Glad Parents

Key Verse

 “The father of the righteous shall greatly rejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy of him. Thy father and thy mother shall be glad, and she that bare thee shall rejoice”  (Proverbs 23: 24).

Text — Proverbs 23:19-26


In his book “How to Be a Gentleman,” Neil Schreiber said that Good manners are treasured even in today’s world, and will never go out of style. “Glad parents” are parents who are delighted, joyful, and satisfied with their children’s words and conduct. They’re usually gratified and ecstatic when their children make good choices, live honourable lives, and excel in their  endeavours.

The Bible text of today urges us to be wise, to respect, obey and pay attention to our parents, to appreciate truth and wisdom, and be conscious of our parents’ practices. Most importantly is the significance of paying attention to and acting upon godly parental guidance as well as avoiding drinking, drug addiction, and all reproachful acts. The path to a happy and more satisfying life is to adhere to sound advice from godly parents and elders.

Don’t trade away virtues like truth, knowledge, and understanding. Always have your parents’ best interests at heart. Remember, to be wise, we must seek and have Jesus, for we won’t discover wisdom outside Christ.


Adhere to sound advice.


 Avoid pleasures that cause harm and disgrace.

Prayer for today

Dear Lord, make me wise to lead a holy life. Amen
