Lessons From Proverbs One

My mother begged me not to go
My father gave me great insight
My sister wagged her finger
As I swaggered out the door

My selfish greedy friends
Waited in the shadows
To show me all the fun
My papa kept me from

Leaving wisdom in the gutter,
And discretion far behind
I headed down the road
My friends not far behind

Not once did I look back
I had no reason to-
Enticement of the plunder
Was just around the corner

We ambushed Mrs. Brown
And left her lying on the ground
We stole her shiny silver car
And put the pedal down

Rolling down the smooth highway
We left the little town behind
Laughing at the stupid clowns
We thought had let us get away

We did not see the curve ahead....
We did not see the flashing lights…
We let old folly take the lead
And wrecked that shiny silver car

My jail cell reeks of urine
My friends no longer cheering
Too bad I was the simple fool
Who left old Proverbs far behind


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
