Reading Time: 2 minutes

Welcome to KHC children’s devotional. It’s always an exciting time here! Very recently we began looking at lessons from the wise words in the book of Proverbs, written by the wisest king ever, King Solomon. We will be continuing on that part for a while. Enjoy every bit of it!

Today our lesson will be centered on authority figures in our lives as children. Listen to what King Solomon has to say.  

Start with God — the first step in learning is bowing down to God; only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning. Pay close attention, friend, to what your father tells you; never forget what you learned at your mother’s knee. Wear their counsel like flowers in your hair, like rings on your fingers. –Proverbs 1: 7-9(MSG)

King Solomon mentions three people here, pay close attention dear Child. He mentions God, your Father, and your Mother.

At this stage of your life, these are the first three most important people in your life!

God most high is your God; he created you and gave you to your father and mother to teach and nurture you. God loves you dearly, you should know this! This truth should be at the center of your whole being.

King Solomon advises you to start with God, the first step in your learning, just like you have learn to walk and talk is learning how to bow down to God, learning how to worship God.

Let me show you another translation.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.  – Proverbs 1:7 (NKJV)

This translation says the fear of God is the beginning of knowledge; you have to live a life that honours and recognizes God. Having the fear of God is not being scared or afraid of God.

It means living in a consciousness that God exists and living our lives to honour and respect his words. This is a piece of wise advice from a wise King.

To be continued…

Precious Holy Spirit, please teach me how to be a good child all the time. Amen.

Make sure you memorize the verses used in this devotional.

I am a good Child, I fear God and honour my father and mother all the time.
