fathers

By the tine a man realizes that maybe his father was right he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong. Charles Wadsworth

Hear, O sons, a father’s instruction, and be attentive, that you may gain insight, for I give you good precepts; do not forsake my teaching. When I was a son with my father, tender, the only one in the sight of my mother, he taught me and said to me, “Let your heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments, and live. Get wisdom; get insight; do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth. Proverbbs 4:1-9
