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.

C.S. Lewis Joins the Chorus

(Proverbs 17:4 KJV)  A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue.

It is amazing how God sometimes brings our reading together from different sources.  I am rereading Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis.  I came across a sentence that speaks to my earlier post today from Book Three, Chapter 6, "Christian Marriage".
“Our experience is coloured through and through by books and plays and cinema, and it takes patience and skill to disentangle the things we have really learned from life for ourselves.”
If you make allowance for the British spelling and the archaic reference to “cinema” you get the point.  We are so saturated with the language and thought of our culture that we don’t know if we are coming or going.  That is why it is important to dwell on the words of God and time tested men of God rather than the latest trend on Facebook.
