v2 Honor your Father and Mother….5th Commandment
Following what Solomon says is beneficial. No disappointments, No what ifs, No I wish, No regrets.
V3-4 Live beyond reproach. Be intentional. Stand by your decisions. Take responsibility for your actions. Success in God’s eyes is not always financial. It is obedience to Scripture.
V5-6 Trust in the Lord – With all your heart.
This is not intellectual. This is with all your heart – the core of your being.
Have a plan. To make straight a person’s path means to make the course of the person’s life one that continually progresses toward a goal. Ask God for Direction. Here it means moral quality of one’s life-moral straightness.
V7-8 Be not wise in your own eyes.
