If you are a parent, you probably feel as I do about your children.
No matter how old they are, you hope that they will be wise.
Perhaps not so much wise like the wise old owl depicted in cartoons, but wise as in the opposite of foolish.
We want the best for our offspring, and the best begins with wisdom.
Acquire wisdom! Acquire understanding!
Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
“Do not forsake her, and she will guard you;
Love her, and she will watch over you.
“The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire wisdom;
And with all your acquiring, get understanding.
“Prize her, and she will exalt you;
She will honor you if you embrace her.
“She will place on your head a garland of grace;
She will present you with a crown of beauty.”
