This week’s proverb marks the last Bible study of the Spring 2024 which shall be resumed in September. As we were led into looking at the impact of wisdom on a wise man’s life. Proverb 10 continues on by showing how a wise son makes his parents glad. Who is the wise son but one who takes all types of lustful temptations and turns them into chances for growth in his spiritual life and fuel for prayer? Such a person, gladdens the heart of God and the hearts of his parents, as he is rescued by his righteousness from death by fleeing from any unjust way of attaining wealth or meeting his desires. Moreover, righteousness is in small things like a small meal made with love under simple ceilings. It is also in one who gathers and doesn't sleep in times of harvest, although times of harvest are difficult and require much work. Those times of harvest are the periods in one’s life when he is able to prostrate, fast, memorize scripture and raise his heart in prayer. These practices are what save and what is kept in one’s heart and mind for days of rain and old age. Fr. Mina emphasizes that a human being was not created to be idle.
