Solomon’s proverbs for the young

The book of proverbs is full of advice for young people, but not only for young people but for everyone, here are many words of wisdom.

In this case we will talk about young people, how they should be in terms of their behavior and how they should act towards all the things that are around them.

For that reason, we will quote several verses from the proverbs that speak to young people.

Straighten the road

In the first verse we will see, Solomon calls on the young man to straighten their path:

Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.

Proverbs 23:19

It is very clear that when the young person deviates from the good path toward things that only lead to perdition. Their life will be very different because they changed their attitude, in a way that nothing will be the same, they will treat their parents in other way and this because their heart was diverted from the right path.

See who you join

We must take great care of the people with whom we share, let’s see what the following verse tells us about it:

Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh:

Proverbs 23:20

In this sense Solomon is emphasizing that, those people who take drinks uncontrolled to do bad things, and always lead their messy life, they are people who do not care about living a life in total disorder. Solomon says this because he has always seen people who practice such things, from ancient times until now.

For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags.

Proverbs 23:21

These drinkers and gluttons, all they get is to spend it on their delights, then they have nothing for their livelihood.

Listen to your parents

Do not forget to listen to your mother even if she grows old, so she helps you in your day to day, because every mother wants to see her children on the right path.

Hearken unto thy father that begat thee, and despise not thy mother when she is old.

Proverbs 23:22

The son who listens to his father is blessed by God for being obedient, also this young man who listens to his mother is a wise son. God likes young people to be obedient, and this is what wise Solomon advises all young people.
