Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way. Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags. Proverbs 23:19-21
“Hear me my son and be wise” no parent would want less.
“and guide your heart in righteousness” I”t should be every parent’s wish that their children would live a righteous life.
“Don’t be a drunkard” Again, I don’t know any parent who would want their child to become a drunk.
“Don’t be a gluttonous person” Of course over indulgence in food and drink is not good for a person.
“Because the drunk and the glutton will live in poverty.” Living a life of a drunk or a glutton will bring you to both physical and spiritual poverty.
I think Proverbs is one of the most influential books in the Bible if only people took time to read and ponder each verse.
