ECWA FOOD FOR THE DAY - Saturday 15th January, 2022

TOPIC: LISTEN TO YOUR GODLY PARENTS AND THE ELDERLY TEXT: 1 KINGS 12:1-15 An African proverb says, "What an old man can see while sitting down, a young man cannot see even while standing up." This emphasizes the importance of listening to old men, elders or senior citizens because of their years of experience and wisdom. This is more so when the elderly people are godly people. Proverbs 23:22 says: "Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old." We should never in pride and arrogance, because of our high position or status, dismiss the counsel of our godly parents and elderly as being outdated, otherwise we will get into big trouble like King Rehoboam.

QUESTION

Who do you seek counsel from? PRAYER

Oh God, help me to respect, honour and listen to advice from my godly parents and elderly people, in Jesus name, Amen.
