    Father Says Get Wisdom:

    Proverbs Four:1-13 King James Version (KJV)
    1 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.

    2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.

    3 For I was my father's son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.

    4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.

    5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.

    6 Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.

    7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

    8 Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.

    9 She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

    10 Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

    11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

    12 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.

    13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.

    Love always, Walter and Debbie

    In James when it is written to ask God for His wisdom , that He gives to all men generously and without adding reproach to it,
    other than the double-minded (as noted in James who should not expect anything)
    will God generously give His Wisdom
    to the unrighteous as well as to the righteous ?

    i.e. ANYONE who lacks wisdom, other than the double-minded ,

    can seek His Wisdom ?

    Amen, I was thinking, in repentance is like taking heed to yourself for righteousness of His sayings, what do you say ?

    Daughters and Fathers
    9 A daughter is a secret anxiety to her father,
    and worry over her robs him of sleep:
    when she is young, for fear she may not marry,
    or if married, for fear she may be disliked;
    10 while a virgin, for fear she may be seduced
    and become pregnant in her father’s house;
    or having a husband, for fear she may go astray,
    or, though married, for fear she may be barren.
    11 Keep strict watch over a headstrong daughter,
    or she may make you a laughing-stock to your enemies,
    a byword in the city and the assembly of the people,
    and put you to shame in public gatherings.
    See that there is no lattice in her room,
    no spot that overlooks the approaches to the house.
    12 Do not let her parade her beauty before any man,
    or spend her time among married women;

    I like one translation of what Jesus said: "Turn to Yahuweh, for His Kingdom is now at hand" compare to "repent!... ... ... " ...

    Turn to Yahuweh seemed to me to be more uplifting - oh, it totally includes even devastating sorrow and grief for sin, and repenting - turning AWAY from sin, yes....
    yet
    so POSITIVELY LIFE CHANGING >>> TURN TO THE CREATOR! HE IS HERE ! HALLELUYAH!
