“My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; for length of days and long life and peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart, and so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones. Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine. My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor detest His correction; for whom the Lord loves He corrects, just as a father the son in whom he delights.”

Proverbs 3:1-12 (NKJV)

CG Discussion Questions:

1. How has the Book of Proverbs helped you draw wisdom from God and what has been the most applicable for your life? Do you have any struggles understanding the love of a father, and explain how the grace of the father towards the prodigal son can help you identify yourself as the child of the living God?
(John 1:12)

2. Explain what “perfect love casts out fear” and “there is no fear in love” mean for you for our relationship with our Heavenly Father. Knowing that we or our parents, being sinful or imperfect will give good gifts to the children, discuss how much more our Father in Heaven will have good plans for our future and give us good things when we ask Him.
(1 John 4:18; Romans 8:15-16; Jeremiah 29:11; Matthew 7:11; James 1:17)

3. Why does the main scripture instruct us to keep God’s word in our heart at all times and explain why the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom? When we do things our ways or feel wise in our own eyes without consulting God, discuss how a man will reap what he sows and how then can God direct our path and make our path straight?
(Proverbs 3:1-3, 7-8, 11-12; 2 Timothy 3:16; Galatians 6:7-8; Proverbs 3:5-6)
