"Hear, my children, the instruction of a father, and give attention to know understanding; for I give you good doctrine: Do not forsake my law." (Proverbs 4:1-2)
Think about your children, or nieces and nephews, or your friends' children. Have you ever had the desire to pick up a small child and hug them with delight or take them aside and give them a gift or the gift of advice--some wisdom that helped you? Throughout the Bible the Lord refers to Himself as our Father and we as His children--His "adopted" children. He didn't go through the trouble of having so many people write the Bible, sacrifice their lives to preserve it--for Himself. He already has this wisdom and knowledge. He did it for us. It's our instruction manual--our lifeline. It isn't a book of rules to make your life miserable. If you have the courage to seek it, the Bible, is the answer to many secrets in life.
