Advice from a father

Incline your ear, and hear the words of the wise,

and apply your heart to my knowledge,

for it will be pleasant if you keep them within you,

if all of them are ready on your lips.”

Proverbs 22:17-18

Proverbs 22 – 24 is a list of wise advise from a father to his son. He begins by challenging his son to listen, to hear the words of the wise. Do you remember wise words from your father? Are there any catch phrases from your childhood that still come to mind? My Dad always told me, “Can’t never could” whenever I tried to quit a task or whenever I did not try as hard as I should to accomplish a task.
