Beware before Intruding
Proverbs 23:25 “May your father and mother rejoice! may she who gave you birth be joyful!”
That is such a great verse!!!
Do we value our mother and father as priceless sources of wisdom?
As adults, we have a tendency to become independent from our parents, often forgetting they have already endured the season of life that lies ahead of us.
Here Solomon is commanding, the above verse to the younger generation.
When we prioritize seeking wisdom in the midst of our friendships, and other sources, we are forgetting the readily available resource to help us wisely in our circumstances.
Parents are one of the greatest resources available. They represent our secret agents, ready, willing, and able to offer guidance for any conflict we face.
How do you feel there time they were still alive you didn’t honour them and now they’re dead that’s when you want to honour them ?
How do you feel there time they were having feelings you didn’t show them love and now they don’t have feelings that’s when you want to express the love you have for them ?
Who wants to get the best while they’re dead ?
DO YOUR BEST FOR THEM, NOW.
DO THE RIGHT THING NOW.
NOW IS THE TIME.
Don’t ask for forgiveness in the grave, but go now while their ears are still hearing and make peace with your parents.
You can’t be giving your parents the bad attitude and when they’re dead you want to be so humble kneeling down in the grave.
Humble yourself now and tell them that you’re sorry and you want to make things right with them.
Don’t wait for your parents to die first before you deeply respect them.
Don’t wait for your parents to die first before you take care of them.
Don’t wait for them to die first before you honour them.
Godly parents tend to know us best, love us beyond measure, and wholeheartedly desire the Lord’s best for us.

🪔 Golden Rules 🪔
The Book of Proverbs is a treasure chest filled with practical tips for leading a peaceful and stress free life. Today we shall study a little about three tips for a peaceful life.
🗣️ Beware of your Words 🗣️
📖 A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver (Prov 25:11).
Words are powerful. Words have the ability to promote peace or destroy relationships. If only we take care to think twice before uttering a word many a strife could be prevented.
👣 Beware of your Steps 👣
📖 Seldom set foot in your neighbor’s house – too much of you, and he will hate you (Prov 25:17).
Too much of anything becomes stale and invites trouble. In the same way stepping into another’s house often will rupture the fellowship. Respect the other persons boundary and privacy by refraining too much of intruding.
🐶 Beware before Intruding 🐶
📖 Like one who seizes a dog by the ears is a passer-by who meddles in a quarrel not his own (Prov 26:17).
In short we need to mind our own business. Avoid meddling in matters that does not need your attention. Stay way from another’s quarrel to stay safe. Intrude and you will get into trouble.
