1 The proverbs of Solomon: A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son brings grief to his mother.

We are all both the wise son and the foolish son. We all have goodness and areas in which we shine and excel. At the same time, we all make poor decisions now and then, decisions that hurt others. Selfish and foolish choices.

  • In what ways are you the wise son bringing joy to those around you? What impact have these actions had on those who care about you?
  • What are some foolish decisions that you have made in your life? How did those choices effect those around you?
  • Looking at your life today, where do you find yourself on the continuum between wisdom and folly?

God’s wisdom doesn’t just help us. It effects all those who come in contact with us, especially those closest to you. It is so easy to fall into the lie that my actions only effect me. The truth is that we all have an impact on this world. Your impact can bring joy or grief. It’s up to you. What legacy will you leave behind? The decisions that you make today are a part of that legacy.
