Proverbs 6: 23
For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light and reproofs of instuction are the way of life:
This chapter of Proverbs is one of my favorites! I want to teach my children to hold fast to instruction (Proverbs 4: 13) through my personal example. The children learn so much by watching me- sometimes good and sometimes not so good. When I read this verse I ponder, "Do the children see my instruction as just a set of rules or do they view them as light, a lamp and the way of life?" Much of how they view my instruction will be a relection of how they see me viewing God's instruction as well as my husbands! How do I respond when I am corrected? Do I humble myself or proudly respond with excuses? Do I daily spend time in the Word to find light for the day? The longer I travel this journey the more convinced I am that I can not go a single day without His lamp to light the way (Psm. 119:105).
May we each consider our example and reflect His Truth!
With much love,
Mrs. Joseph Wood
