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.

(Proverbs 16:16 KJV)  How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!

When we talk about blessing and prosperity we need to keep it in this context.  Proverbs has a lot to say about wealth and how we get it but this is a reminder to keep things in perspective.  How often do we have a choice?  How often do we judge others on their bank balance rather than their wisdom.

So keep your priorities in line.  Seek that which is eternal.

That is a great reminder. Now that I think about it this is more the length I was originally trying for. I am going to look at this. Thanks for letting the Spirit use you to prod me.

Grace and Peace.
