My son pay attention to what I say, turn your ear to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart.

Proverbs 4:20-21

Wise words from a very wise man! Solomon’s advice is timeless, just as relevant to us today as to the young man he spoke to 3000 years ago. Our Bibles contain a ‘treasure trove’ of what Jesus said, for, he taught them as one who had authority. (Mk.1:22) So let us listen closely to his words for, ‘no one ever spoke the way this man does’ (Jn.7:46). Let us read them each day, taking time to think about and meditate upon them not just turning them over in our minds, but treasuring them and keeping them in our hearts!
