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.

Is Sermonito Spanglish for “Little Sermon?”

(Proverbs 19:20 KJV)  Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

“Hear" (listen NASB) (8085).  That is a one word sermon.  It doesn’t take long to hear but it takes a lifetime to apply.

It is easy to let the word slip by in our world but for the ancient Jew it was impossible.  The Hebrew word is shama and it is the first word of the Shema, a Bible verse that was to be repeated daily by faithful believers in the OT.
(Deuteronomy 6:4 KJV)  Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
Not a bad way to start your day.  Listen.  God is speaking and remember He does not write a blog or post on the internet.  He wrote the word.  For us.  For today.

So?  Listen.
