(Pro 15:20 KJV) A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother.
Wisdom is often associated with verbal expression. In the cartoons showing someone climbing to a mountain peak to ask a question of the wise man sitting there, the desired goal is a verbal answer to a perplexing question. When it comes to our children I think it needs to go beyond that because in our lives as parents it needs to go beyond that. Wise words are weak without wise behavior.
My son has a lot of dreams and plans. That is well and good but I don’t get excited about them. I watch what he does. That is where the wisdom will come out. In the same way people are watching us.
So? Be walking wisdom. Anyone can be talking wisdom. Sometimes the talking kind is on the level of the package that says, “New. Improved.” The real test is in the contents.
