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.

The Blessing of Go

(Proverbs 9:6 KJV)  Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

As I was studying this verse I noticed that the word “go” (proceed NASB) (833) is sometimes translated with the idea of “to bless,” not in this verse but in other verses in the OT.  How would it read it we try a Pumice Pathetic Paraphrase on it and substitute “bless”?
(Proverbs 9:6 PPP)  Forsake the foolishness, and live; and let understanding bless you.
When we move away from doing things the way the world does them and turn to God’s ways we are blessed. 

So?  You have an invitation to the wedding feast of the lamb.  You have RSVP’d and are ready to go.  Remember that little slip of paper that had a map and directions?  Take it with you.  Follow it.  If you don’t you might miss the party.
