“My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.” - Proverbs 1:10.
          I’ve always thought that the many, many times that Solomon refers to the readers of this wonderful Book as “My Son” are a great encouragement.  It isn’t merely a manner of speaking, but rather is a method of drawing the readers into a deeper and more familiar form of reading and considering what he was saying to them.  As we know, what is taught throughout the Book is a collection of things that Solomon had learned from a long life of failing and falling away from the things of God and being drawn back into fellowship with his God.  
         We should also remember that Solomon was used by God as a Prophet and speaks in the Books that he wrote for inclusion in the Bible as the very voice of God to man.  In a manner of speaking we can hear what he says as if God we speaking it to us, His children in the faith!  We ought to take what he says in as the advice from our heavenly Father that it is!!
