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.

Written to Be Used

(Proverbs 22:20 KJV)  Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,

Have you ever been accused of being arrogant because you claim to know truth?  Maybe you have never made that claim.  You should if you are a follower of Jesus Christ.  We do not operate on our own steam.  We have “counsels” (4156) and “knowledge” (1847) based not only on the shoulders of the giants of the faith but on the word of God itself.

Solomon has “written” (3789) things down for us.  So did Paul, John, Isaiah, etc.  We have the benefit, but only if we use it. 

Are you using what God has made available to you?  Why not?

So?  The truth given to us is not a nest egg or a savings account for a rainy day.  It is to be accessed and applied every day.  Don’t waste the resource.
