There is a war of ideas competing for our youth (and for anyone unaware). The two sides of this battle are presented to the son by the loving father in [esvignore]Proverbs 1:8-19[/esvignore] in an effort to stir up the son to embrace wise teaching and instruction. We investigate these two sides of a deadly battle and ask “Why do people choose the foolish way? Why do youth so easily join with bad company? Why does folly look so much better than wisdom? Where do we find the power to follow wisdom?
This is a good sermon for parents and older children to listen to together, especially if the foolish ways of the world have been successful in tempting our Christian sons and daughters.
