Young Fools Become Old Fools (With Love From Dad)
Acting the way fools will is often permissible in your youth. People will enable this acts by excusing it away as inexperience, youthful exuberance and not knowing any better.
Truly, wisdom comes with age, but at what age does one get enough wisdom to make him put aside the way of fools?
Life begins at forty? But a fool at forty is a fool forever, still? Then forty is definitely not the age to start exhibiting wisdom.
There are some things a child with do that every adult knows to be a manifestation of his inexperience, exuberance and inadequate information. But as a child grows, he should be encouraged to seek information, retain knowledge and apply wisdom. Like Apostle Paul, he should be encouraged to put aside the ways of a child and begin to apply principles he has learned in his daily life, like all adults do (or should do).
As a child of mine, I pray for more of God’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding for you. I pray your skills and talents manifest themselves and I hope you find them quickly and begin to hone them.
At the same time, expect me to be on you, pushing you to get smarter, making you to seek knowledge and challenging you to apply it.
Young fools become old fools, and you will be neither.
