(Proverbs 4:11 KJV) I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
This is not Wisdom speaking, but Solomon. He is addressing his son. Back in verse 4 he pointed out that he was taught by his father and now it is time to pass it on. It does us well to remember that we are not to be cul de sacs but channels. We are given knowledge. We pass it on. We have made mistakes. We share them. We have skills. We show others how to apply them. In the process we build a family. In a larger sense we build the family of God.
So? It doesn’t stop with us. All around us are lives that are watching and learning. I am afraid that I don’t always demonstrate what I really want passed on. Hopefully I will be able to do better today.
