The greatest fear of the Christian parent is that his or her children are not walking in the truth and, consequently, will unwillingly self-inflict much pain and sorrow on themselves becoming trapped by the pitfalls of life.
Your journey in life will be determined by the choices in your youth. Basing those choices on truth, rather than on perception, determines the quality of that journey, as well as choosing the final destination.
There is no reset button in life. Avoiding the pitfalls of life takes wisdom-wisdom not of this world. The key to avoiding, and worse yet, causing a disaster in your life is to develop a keen eye for any signs of trouble.
Watch Your Step Barefoot in a Broken-Glass World helps the reader identify and avoid the pitfalls as identified by Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived. He had profound insights into the fallen nature of man. Solomon's intent for the book of Proverbs was teaching young people the tactical skill of biblical wisdom.
The purpose for Proverbs is to equip us with divine wisdom. Possessing this wisdom will bring the most success in this life, and minimize the negative effects of living in a fallen world. Watch your step-you never know from one moment to the next what challenges in your life await you. After all, we are all born barefoot in a broken-glass world.
