Proverb for the Day 17:6 — Family: Got to Love ‘Em!

Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children.

This verse discusses family in the Biblical world–children, their parents and their grandparents. It says grandchildren make grandparents feel very special. The purpose of a crown was always to make someone look special. Also, in a Biblical family, children find pride in who their parents are and what they do.

When family life is as it should be, there is great love and appreciation for each other–generation to generation. We understand this verse at HUM. In fact, after getting clean and starting to think clearly again, one of the first things a guy starts to feel and wants to begin addressing is his relationship to loved ones. Top of the list are his children, parents, grandparents and siblings.

And, while we must work recovery for our own good, our loved ones are a powerful additional motivation to “get ‘er done!” One day at a time.
