Passage: Proverbs 4:1-9
Series: Proverbs (2013)
Duration: 44 mins 58 secs
Does it take a village to raise a child? This misguided notion insists that training children must be a joint effort of schools, families, and government organizations. Proverbs 4 places the teaching of good judgment and clear thinking solely on the shoulders of parents. Listen to this lesson to learn the role of the father in the generational transfer of wisdom and how fathers should develop a plan to instruct their children from infancy to adulthood. Learn what wrong thinking lies beneath the beliefs of Plato, Rousseau, and others who hold that children belong to the community. See how wisdom is not always a matter of right or wrong and common sense is not so common.

Understand that everything that happens to us is designed for a purpose and goes back to a spiritual issue.
