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.

Eye-sometric Exercise

(Proverbs 3:21 KJV)  My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:

How do we keep “sound wisdom” (8454) and “discretion” (4209) in front of us?  The most obvious requirement is to decide to make it happen.  The Holy Spirit will move.  He will bring to mind what we need in a crisis but the implication here is that we are to organize our lives and direct our thinking in such a way to keep God and His ways in our minds.

One way to see this happen is to keep the written word open in front of you.  Remember that Bibles don’t open themselves and they don’t follow you around the house begging to be read.  You might program your radio to stay on a certain station, but again, that requires your conscious effort.

So?  Put in the effort.  The rewards are eternal.

I've been failing there a lot lately, myself.

I wish I could say I've got it down perfectly, but I don't. Grace is wonderful.

Grace and peace.
