Welcome to Day #24 of the Grounded Series!
So, lots of my friends have phones, tablets, iPods, computers and more.?? I do enjoy it when my cousin brings her speaker and phone to listen to music when we are together but, it makes me upset too. I only have a iPod. That I have to share. With all 3 of my brothers!!??????It’s exhausting! I can’t wait till’ I get my own! Why can’t I get one now? And if I do, why do I have to check in with you if I want to get on it? I just want to be like them!
Proverbs 15:32 “Whoever ignores instruction despises himself, but he who listens to reproof regains intelligence.”
“Whoever ignores instruction despises himself……”
You loathe it, abhor it,
hate it, and think it’s vile.

So if you ignore the fact that your parents said you have to wait to have a phone, you despise yourself or
hate yourself. (Remember, x out hate). 🙂
Next. “…But he who listens to reproof regains intelligence.” Yay! I want intelligence! So, maybe I should listen when my mom says I should wait to get a phone. Wait, let’s get a closer look at the word intelligence:
Intelligence is your ability to comprehend something.

I hope you have got an idea of what this verse means. Remember, trust your mom and dad.???? They know what’s best for you.
Stay Grounded in Love,
