Proverbs as Dear Friends

Instruct your children; they will give you peace of mind
    and bring delight into your life. Proverbs 29:17

Let’s imaging something…You’re walking down the street carrying your books, when all of a sudden, a dear friend that you haven’t seen in a long time is coming toward you.  You are so excited about seeing this person that your mouth drops open and so do your arms!  Your books fall to the ground and you run up and give each other a great big hug.

Being surprised is something like what happens when we read Proverbs.  Each proverb comes toward you as though you are running into an old friend, surprised by what God has to say.   Proverbs are one of the ways God comes toward us.  Drop what you are doing, let God hug you and listen to God tell you some very important messages…And know that God loves you!
