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.

(Proverbs 26:27 KJV)  Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.

This is simple wisdom.  We are our own worst enemy.  We lay the groundwork for our lives and then we reap the results.  I guess this is another form of “Whatever you reap, you will sow.” 

What kind of future are you developing?  Are you laying the foundation for punctuality or tardiness?  Is your theme honesty or deceit?  Are you careful or rash?  Each time you make a decision you are adding to the foundation of the future.

So?  Stop digging.  Whatever that means in your life.  Think about yesterday or today as it has unfolded.  Life won’t change if you don’t.  Don’t focus on the things you can’t change.  If you have a big nose, stop looking in mirrors.  Hey, that sounds like it could become a Pumice Proverb.

We can't help ourselves, I suppose, we ARE after all, our own worst enemies.

I guess that is why it also says in Proverbs something to the effect that the wounds of a friend are helpful. Think of all the ways our wives point out what we miss.

Grace and peace.
