INTRODUCTION:

The Bible warns us that the last days would be perilous times for us and one of the reasons would be a generation that does not respect its parents. Allow me to quote 2 Timothy 3:1-2:

“1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,” How do you survive spiritually in a world that is living dangerously and how do you help your children overcome the pressures of worldly voice and choices?

The passage that we will be teaching today tells us how we and our children will be able to survive this dark world that we are in.

This passage is a call to heed and follow the godly wisdom of the parents which should be embraced from generation to generation. There are three things I would like us to see in this sermon:

TEXT: Proverbs 4:1-9
* The Priority of Promoting God’s Wisdom (vv. 1-4a)
* The Necessity of Pursuing Wisdom (vv. 4b-7)
* The Blessedness of Wisdom (vv. 6, 8-9)
