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.

Life Assurance

(Proverbs 8:35 KJV)  For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.

How important is Wisdom?  Is it something that everyone should have or is it just for the few?  Actually this is one of the big questions of modern culture.  We have elites who think they have the right to think for everyone else and tell them how to live their lives.  They used to be called the aristocracy or nobility.  Now we call them by different names. 

Proverbs is reminding us that each of us is to seek wisdom.  Tie this in with the promise of Jesus,
(Luke 11:9 KJV)  And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
The person who seeks, “finds” (4672). 

And what do we find when we seek?  Here it mentions “life” (2425b) and “favor” (7522).  Not bad for something that is offered to everyone.

So?  Think for yourself today.  Apply your mind in seeking the wisdom that God has to offer.  He will meet you more than half way.
