Heed Wise Counsel

Proverbs 1:9 (MSG)
Wear their counsel like flowers in your hair, like rings on your fingers.

Interestingly enough, I love a beautiful ring.  I like my rings to be quietly beautiful....not loud and obnoxious. 

To back up, the "their" in this verse refers back to yesterday's verse of the father and mother's teachings.  I know that at the time of this writing the King's ring was used for signing important documents.  It was an important piece of jewlry, not only just for appearances, but for sealing decrees.  As I take this and apply it to today, I begin to recognize that not only is it important to hear my parents instruction, but to follow them.
