Lesson's to my Son

I decided some weeks ago I had a lot of little tidbits of knowledge and wisdom I wanted to pass down to my son I started formulating a way and manner in which to do so. My dad taught me so much about what it means to be a man that I feel like I need to pass that blessing own to my son(never mind it is a biblical mandate). So when I started thinking about it I could not wrap my mind around a "method" to get this to my boy. Even doing a blog post did come to mind but the manner I was going to go about it was completely different than where I am now.

I had decided I was just going to put out the "one-liners" on the blog with a little bit of information about each one then in a couple of years I would just go to the blog when I had a lesson to teach. Well as so often is the case God had other plans. Yesterday while assembling my new Grill that I got with my Christmas gift card God started to speak to me. As I was thinking about all these little clip of information I wanted to pass down I kept coming back to thoughts of which I considered those of the evil one. Thoughts like "are you living these out?", "How can YOU teach these", and "Why would the boy listen to you?" Because I had cast them out as not my thoughts or God's voice I kept on pondering until this morning....

I rise most days around 5am. It is a time for me to be by myself. I don't have to think if I don't want to, I don't have to read if I don't want to, I can just sit and meditate if that is what I'm feeling, I can watch TV, I can surf the web. It is "me" time. As I walked away from my sleeping wife and warm bed at 5am this morning I was hit figuratively to the floor. God was talking to me yesterday. He was trying to tell me he has already done this series of post for me in the Bible in the book of Proverbs. Why would I re-invent the wheel when the wheel that has been given is PERFECT. So as I walked away I went in to the office grabbed my bible and started with Proverbs 1 this morning. I will in no means learn or pass on everything these snipets of wisdow contain but it is better than trying to make it up on my own.
