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.

Frank Sinatra He Ain't

(Pro 24:1 KJV) Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.

We seem to have a “desire” (183) to be with evil people. Think back to when you were in school, or just look around at the mall. You often see a couple that demonstrates this. One is neat, clean, attractive and moves well. The other looks like they are on leave from a detox center. It always amazes me how young girls and men in general are attracted to people of questionable character.

Previous generations had heros like George Washington or Frank Sinatra. This generation has heros that use only four letter words and measure their worth in the complexity of their tattoos.

We are called to be different. Yes, we must minister to a hurting world. Yes, drug addicts need help. Yes, we need to reform the cities. But don’t make them your role models. Jesus is to be our role model. The Bible is to be our text book. If your goal is to be cool, maybe you should become a Buddhist and come back as a refrigerator.
