Grandparent with a Purpose
but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Proverbs 1:7 NIV
Respect and reverence for God is the beginning of knowledge; that is, acquiring information, facts, ideas, truths or principles.
A fool is an unintelligent person considered to lack good sense or judgment, following his own devices, without regard to reason, or reverence for God.
The key to hearing from God is honoring Him. The ability to obtain wisdom from God begins with our capacity and motivation to fear Him.
Pray for your grandchildren to:
• Show respect and honor God with all their heart.
• Listen to God with spiritual ears for wisdom to apply their knowledge.
• Obtain wisdom to make sensible decisions and judgments based upon their knowledge and personal experience.
• Learn self-control
