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.

Fresh Focus

(Proverbs 4:22 KJV)  For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

I looked at twelve different translations on this verse.  Eleven of them used some form of the two words “life” (2425b) and “health” (4832).  The context is paying attention to the words of Proverbs.  The understanding is that by listening and following, things will be different.  The difference will be better.

What are you going to pay attention to today?  Are you focused?  When was the last time you drove past a turnoff or a stop sign because your focus was on something besides your driving?  Some times the results are funny.  At least the kids get a laugh if they are in the car.  Sometimes the results are embarrassing.  Sometimes the results are deadly.

So?  Use this reminder to refocus your attention.  Yes, you must go to work today.  No, you cannot stay at home and meditate, or take a nap.  But go with a fresh focus.  Let the Word bring new life and health to your day.
