Application for Fighter Verse For June 1 and 2

===

Proverbs 6:22-23

When you walk, they will lead you; when you lie down, they will watch over you; and when you awake, they will talk with you. For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching a light, and the reproofs of discipline are the way of life,

I was talking with my kids about this passage and we talked about the three life moments that are mentioned: When you walk, when you lie down, and when you awake.

The trickiest one to explain (and perhaps understand) was the idea that parent’s guidance can watch over you when you lie down. What I told my kids was that if you live wisely (and hold onto and live according to wise teachings from your parents) you live in such a way that when you sleep you are safe. And then you can put your head on your pillow with the peaceful knowledge that you are safe.

Of course, extrapolating this idea all the way out, the biggest blessing a human can have is the knowledge that even if they die while they are sleeping they will be in heaven, with their heavenly father.

May God work through the words of all parents so that this will be true for all of their children.
