Proverbs 20:20-30

Insulting and thinking less of our parents can be our downfall. The author of Proverbs 20 assumes the parent is seeking the wisdom of God, training a child in the way they should go (Prov. 22:6), and is living by the Torah teachings of guiding your children to follow the Lord in every circumstance (Deut. 6). A godly parent is beckoning their children toward the light and away from darkness.

When you are younger and live by your own understanding, you don’t know there are ways that lead to life and ways that lead to death. Not listening to your parents—or even taking it another step further, insulting them or cursing them—destroys the ability to see the light they are trying to help us follow. When a prideful spirit rises inside of us, it can eventually snuff out the lamp, leaving us in utter darkness.

Is it possible that the parent who loves Jesus wants the best for you? Even though they aren’t perfect, maybe their desire for your best is rooted in wanting to see you flee from utter darkness? Ask Jesus what He wants you to see in your life.
