Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future. Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand. Proverbs 19:20-21
“Listen!” your Mother tells you,
“Go and clean your room!”
“Listen!” your teacher tells you,
“You may eat your lunch at noon.”
“Listen!” your doctor tells you,
Take these pills by mouth.”
“Listen,” your Grandpa tells you,
“Do not run in the house!”
It’s important to listen
And do what you are told.
Learn to do things the right way,
And be wise when you are old.
Listen to wise instruction
To all in authority.
And carefully listen to Jesus
He knows the future, you see!
You may have many plans for your day.
You may know what you want to do.
But God is all His wisdom,
Knows the best for you.
God has a perfect plan
For each and everyone.
He will guide you down the right path.
He will show you by Jesus, His Son!
Fun Fact: God has a plan just for you! (Jeremiah 29: 11)
