I love this quote to elaborate on when speaking to youth. Not in a throw it in your face manor but truthfully with as much transparency as possible.
Tell me, many rough spots would you have saved if you listened to your parents?
I personally could have saved about a decade of grief. Haha
Now I have rich content for “what not to do”. I’m truly indebted to my parents who stuck it out in my young crazy years.
While Proverbs 13 has lots of great sound bites…this is a conversation starter to unpack:
“Intelligent children listen to their parents; foolish children do their own thing.”
Proverbs 13:1 MSG
