For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.
MSG When I was a boy at my father’s knee, the pride and joy of my mother, He would sit me down and drill me: “Take this to heart. Do what I tell you—live!
Thank GOD for fathers.
I pray that GOD will put your love and favour in the hearts of those you call parents.
I also pray that GOD will put undivided attention and devotion in your heart for the things you are being taught by them.
TPT Then my father taught me, saying, “Never forget my words. If you do everything that I teach you, you will reign in life.”
If you do everything you are being taught, counselled, instructed, corrected and warned about, you will surely reign in this very life. You will be above and not beneath. You will rise and not fall. You will win and not lose. You will thrive and not just survive. You will excel.
