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.

No Cash Allowed

(Proverbs 16:17 KJV)  The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.

In California we are seeing an increase in toll roads.  That is bad enough, but they are elitist toll roads.  You cannot use cash.  You need a tag on your windshield that is read by a camera tied to a computer that deducts the fee from your account.  There are times when traffic is ugly that I wish I had access to such a system.  As believers we have a tag on our soul that allows us access to the Highway of Holiness.
(Isaiah 35:8 NASB)  A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it.
We can choose to “depart” (5493) from “evil” (7451a) and get onto God’s highway.

So?  How do you intend to live your day?  In life you can choose to be on the Highway of Holiness even when you are riding the bus.  Make it a point to avoid evil today.
