“The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.”
It is the responsibility of the parents to teach their child to do right and avoid what is wrong.
“My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.”
Lemuel, who was once a child, is now a king.
The words of the chapter do not refer to his words, but rather the words that were taught to him by his mother.
What did your mother teach you?
If you were fortunate to have a Christian mother who pointed you to Jesus, there is no description that justifies the amount of blessing you have received through her.
Many Biblical scholars believe that Lemuel is an endearing name given to Solomon by his mother, Bathsheba.
The last chapter of Proverbs gives us many Words of Wisdom.
The first nine verses deal with the son.
Men can refer to these verses as an example for them, while women can also reference them as an example of what to look for and not look for in a husband.
The remainder of the chapter deals with the infamous Virtuous Woman.
We often refer to these verses as to what women should aspire to be and become, yet men should also pay careful attention to them as a roadmap to finding a wife.
Throughout the forthcoming verses, we will focus on Walking In Wisdom as God intended when He inspired and preserved each Word.
There is so much Truth within the final 31 verses of the Book of Proverbs.
