Teacher’s Bequest

Proverbs 3:1-8

My child Blessed Name, don’t forget what I have been teaching.
Remember God’s guidance, wisdom and love in your heart.
Together they will prolong your life many years and
bring you, Blessed Name, peace, prosperity and true joy.

Never let love and faithfulness leave you Blessed Name,
Bind them around yourself like a beautiful shawl.
Engrave them on the tablet of your God-given heart.
Then Blessed Name, you will win favor and a good reputation
in the sight of God and other good people.

Blessed Name, Trust in the Lord with all of your heart
and not in what you understand or think you know.
In everyway, every day and every thing, submit yourself to God,
and Blessed Name, He will make your path straight and clear.

My precious child Blessed Name, don’t think you are extremely wise.
Respect God, be humble and teachable all your life.
This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.
