Proverbs 3

This is the first passage of scripture our girls memorized:

My son, do not forget my law, but let your heart keep My commands;
For length of days and long life and peace they will add to you.
Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart;
And so, find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil.
It will be health to your flesh and strength to your bones.
Honor the Lord with all your possessions and with the first fruits of all your labors;
So your barns will be filled with plenty and your vats will overflow with new wine.
My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor detest His correction.
For whom the Lord loves, He corrects, just as a father the son in whom He delights.
Proverbs 3:1-12
