Proverbs 19:26 He who robs his father and drives out his mother is a son who brings shame and disgrace.

Perhaps, this Scripture here about the father indicates that he not only wastes what he gets himself, but talks his dad out of what he has, and wastes his dad’s savings also.

 However, a son can waste his father in more ways than money. A son that will not take advice from his father has wasted all the stored-up knowledge his father could share with him. For this son to chase away his mother has to be something very terrible. Mothers do not give up their sons easily. Whether this literally means chases him out of the home or whether it means his evil deeds have driven her affection away, is awfully bad.

A mother’s love is next to God’s love. This son would certainly be a dishonor to his parents. Shame and reproach would certainly be the aftereffects of this life.

 In this verse, it appears that the son comes into possession of his father’s property during his parents’ lifetime, but rather than caring for them, he drives them out.
