Part 3 Adrian Rogers on Proverbs “How To Be The Father Of A Wise Child”

I have been reading Proverbs almost every day for many years with my family in the evening and there is lots of wisdom in it.

Another great sermon outline from Adrian Rogers.

___________

The fool is the rebel. Arrogant, wicked are words that describe the fool. This person is not lacking in mental ability but is lacking in morality. They are without an ability to discern morally.

Proverbs 1:22-24

“Simpletons! How long will you wallow in ignorance?
Cynics! How long will you feed your cynicism?
Idiots! How long will you refuse to learn?
About face! I can revise your life.
Look, I’m ready to pour out my spirit on you;
I’m ready to tell you all I know.
As it is, I’ve called, but you’ve turned a deaf ear;
I’ve reached out to you, but you’ve ignored me.

Proverbs 15:14

An intelligent person is always eager to take in more truth;
fools feed on fast-food fads and fancies.

Proverbs 14:9

The stupid ridicule right and wrong,
but a moral life is a favored life.

Proverbs 15:20-21

Intelligent children make their parents proud;
lazy students embarrass their parents.

21 The empty-headed treat life as a plaything;
the perceptive grasp its meaning and make a go of it.

Isaiah 5:20

Doom to you who call evil good
and good evil,
Who put darkness in place of light
and light in place of darkness,
Who substitute bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!

Proverbs 17:10

A quiet rebuke to a person of good sense
does more than a whack on the head of a fool.

Hebrews 12:6

The Message (MSG)

4-11 In this all-out match against sin, others have suffered far worse than you, to say nothing of what Jesus went through—all that bloodshed! So don’t feel sorry for yourselves. Or have you forgotten how good parents treat children, and that God regards you as his children?

My dear child, don’t shrug off God’s discipline,
but don’t be crushed by it either.
It’s the child he loves that he disciplines;
the child he embraces, he also corrects.

God is educating you; that’s why you must never drop out. He’s treating you as dear children. This trouble you’re in isn’t punishment; it’s training, the normal experience of children. Only irresponsible parents leave children to fend for themselves. Would you prefer an irresponsible God? We respect our own parents for training and not spoiling us, so why not embrace God’s training so we can truly live? While we were children, our parents did what seemed best to them. But God is doing what is best for us, training us to live God’s holy best. At the time, discipline isn’t much fun. It always feels like it’s going against the grain. Later, of course, it pays off handsomely, for it’s the well-trained who find themselves mature in their relationship with God.

IF I HAD TO PUT A KEY VERSE IT WOULD BE THIS:

Proverbs 17:10

A quiet rebuke to a person of good sense
does more than a whack on the head of a fool.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS VERSE MEANS?
