Praise for Good Parents

A fool spurns a parent’s discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence. Prv. 15:5 God, thank you for Godly parents who seek to raise their children to love and honor you. Rescue the youth of our world, surround them with more Godly influences and help them...

A Good Place to Start

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For through wisdom your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer....
