She is Life

Today's reading: Proverbs 4:1-13

The opening words of Proverbs 4 took me back to when I was a young girl and my parents were doing their best to teach and equip me with godly wisdom. At that young age, I didn't fully understand what they were telling me and I certainly didn't grasp how wise they were or the rich instruction they were passing on to me. But I do understand it now, and could see so much of what they told me in these verses: 

Verse 6: she will keep you and guard you;
Verse 8: she will exalt and honor you if you embrace her;
Verse 9: she will place a garland and crown on your head;
Verse 12: you will not stumble;
Verse 13: she is your life.

Have you experienced the benefits noted in Proverbs 4:1-13 as a result of following God's wisdom? How are you teaching and displaying godly wisdom as a parent, grandparent, teacher, mentor, manager? Tami
