What does Proverbs 3:1 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 3:1

My son, forget not my law
Or, "doctrine" F5; the doctrine of Christ, the Gospel, and the several truths of it; which, being of the utmost moment and importance, should be kept in memory, and not let slip, or be in the least slighted and neglected; see ( Hebrews 2:1-3 ) ; but let thine heart keep my commandments;
as the ark, or chest, kept the two tables of the law put into it; it denotes a cordial affection for the commandments and ordinances of Christ, a hearty attention and obedience to them, and a constant and cheerful observance of them, flowing from love and gratitude to him, ( John 14:15 John 14:21 ) .
