Deuteronomy 4:9 (Amplified Bible)

Deuteronomy 4:9 (King James Version)
4:9 Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget (ALEPH-TAV) the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;
Praise, worship and thank You very much LORD JESUS for You are Blessor and Giver of all things and this as a father I will pass to my children.
Praise, worship and thank You very much LORD JESUS, for You remind my husband to teach everything that He learned from You, and I will, by Your Grace and Strength enforce and follow it all up on our children.

VIII. MAIN BODY:
Proverbs 1:8 (Amplified Bible)
1:8 My son, hear the instruction of your father; reject not nor forsake the teaching of your mother.
Instruction or "musar" in Hebrew means:
1. chastisement - correction; punishment; pain inflicted for punishment and correction, either by stripes or otherwise.
2. reproof, warning or instruction; also restraint
3. bond, chastening, chastisement, check, correction, discipline, doctrine, instruction, rebuke
Teaching or "torah torah" in Hebrew means:
1. precept or statute
2. Decalogue or Pentateuch: - law
Teaching is already established long before mother can teach it. Father has the sole responsibility of creating from conception the family's law and doctrine, and all the mother can do is teach it, enforce with love to her children.
A. JESUS has given me all things.
"Only take heed, and guard your life diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen and lest they depart from your [mind and] heart all the days of your life."
The signature "Aleph-Tav" is in between "forget" and "the things". If JESUS is not on the things you desire, forget it, just remember JESUS. This is the correct placement of JESUS - He is in the center of all things and us.
Forget = JESUS = the things.
When it's like this Forget = the things = JESUS, the things in our life become our idols and thorns, that stands in the way of GOD and us.
Luke 8:14 (Amplified Bible)
8:14 And as for what fell among the thorns, these are [the people] who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked and suffocated with the anxieties and cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not ripen (come to maturity and perfection).
Remember all things are not beneficial for us, only things that will benefit us, GOD had already given them to us.
