An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Fat Is Good

(Pro 13:4 KJV) The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.

I think it amusing that the concept of “fat” (1878) has done a turnabout in our world. In the OT it is obviously a good term. In our culture, fat is bad. Another difference between the world and the Word. There are many words translated “fat” in the OT. This is not the most common.
