Children & Parent...Discipline children and teach them in the way they should go and they will not depart from it.
One of the most powerful proverbs I find is this from 20: 21 WHOEVER CURSES HIS FATHER OR MOTHER HIS LAMP WILL GO OUT IN DEEP DARKNESS.
Being lazy...Don't love sleep or you will become poor; open your eyes, and you'll have enough
to eat. There is nothing worse that someone being lazy.
The mocker...Drive out a mocker and conflict goes too; then lawsuits and dishonour will cease.
Alcohol... For Those who linger over wine those who go looking for mixed wine...Don't gaze at wine when it is red, when it gleams in the cup and goes down smoothly. In the end it bites like a snake and stings like a viper. Your eyes will see will see strange things, andyou will say absurd things. You'll be like someone sleeping out at sea or lying down on the topof a ships mast. They struck me, but I feel no pain! They beat me, but I didn't know it! When will I wake up? I'll look for another drink.
Wisdom for a home...A house is built by wisdom, and it is established by understanding; by knowledge the rooms are filled and with every precious and beautiful treasure.
Who wants to read other books on the how to live and bring up our kids and for our home when God has given it all for us in simple language.
