I love telling other entrepreneurs the wise things that my dad taught me. A lot of what he learned in business came from what my grandma taught him, and he’ll let me know that.
That’s how wisdom works. Its time-tested and proven ways of living. Its as good today as it was half a century ago.
We have at our fingertips the ability to continue learning amazing wisdom every day.
Maybe you didn’t have a dad to pour into you. It could be that your single mom had to raise you and didn’t have a lot of time to instruct you in wise ways. Maybe you didn’t grow up in a Christian home and the things you learned are getting you nowhere.
God provided the book of Proverbs so that you wouldn’t have this problem anymore. Everything your mom and dad taught you or should have taught you is in there.
Godpreneurs, it would be very wise to read a chapter of proverbs everyday.
But don’t take my word for it:
My son, listen to your father’s instruction, and don’t forsake your mother’s teaching: for they will be a garland to grace your head, and chains around your neck.
I’m constantly doing devotionals on proverbs because of the wisdom.
I have to keep reading proverbs daily because as an entrepreneur I’m constantly sliding back into old habits that don’t suit me anymore.
For the backsliding of the simple will kill them. The careless ease of fools will destroy them. But whoever listens to me will dwell securely, and will be at ease, without fear of harm.”
