MONDAY 1ST OCTOBER 2018 MORNING
Proverbs 1:7-9 New International Version (NIV)
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools[a] despise wisdom and instruction.
Prologue: Exhortations to Embrace Wisdom
Warning Against the Invitation of Sinful Men
8 Listen, my son, to your father’s instruction
and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.
9 They are a garland to grace your head
and a chain to adorn your neck.
- Proverbs 1:7 The Hebrew words rendered fool in Proverbs, and often elsewhere in the Old Testament, denote a person who is morally deficient.
Children are encouraged to listen to their parents and to follow their advice. We as parents should bring up our children according to God’s laws. Let us seek to be guided by God in our lives. True wisdom comes from putting God first in our lives.
JUMATATU TAREHE 1 OKTOBA ASUBUHI
7 Kumcha Bwana ni chanzo cha maarifa, Bali wapumbavu hudharau hekima na adabu.
8 Mwanangu, yasikilize mafundisho ya baba yako, Wala usiiache sheria ya mama yako,
9 Kwa maana hayo yatakuwa kilemba cha neema kichwani pako, Na mikufu shingoni mwako.
Watoto wanashauriwa kuwasikiliza na kutii wazazi wao. Wazazi pia wanapaswa kumsikiliza Mungu na kuwalea waototo katika imani na maadili mema. Hekima ya kweli ni kumtafuta Mungu kwanza.
