Proverbs 7:6-7 (ESV)
6 For at the window of my house
I have looked out through my lattice,
7 and I have seen among the simple,
I have perceived among the youths,
a young man lacking sense,
The father looks from the window of his house
and observes members of his community.The wise learn from evaluating the attitudes and actions of others. While the father watched, he saw the simple, or those who would become easy prey for the wicked, and he noticed a specific young man who lacked sense. As the father considered those around him, he did so from his “window” or his worldview. He believed in a personal God whose nature is holy, and as the creator of all, demands a specific behavior from those he formed to inhabit his universe. The father was able to evaluate the actions of others through his worldview and pass wisdom on to his son. Do you believe in the existence of absolute right and wrong? If so, who or what determines what is proper behavior? These and other concepts shape our worldview and should be discussed with those we love.
