The Proverbs of Solomon, to the Young Man

The first seven chapters of Proverbs are directed to sons. My son is going off to college in the fall - what better words to send him off with than God's, spoken through Solomon. 

"And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore. And Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt. For he was wiser than all men; and his fame was in all nations round about. And he spake three thousand proverbs: and his songs were a thousand and five. And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom." (1 Kings Chapter 4)
