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.

Upright, Not Uptight

(Proverbs 28:18 KJV)  Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.

I have a choice to make.  Today, again.  Tomorrow, again.  Daily for the rest of my life.  I will decide each day how I will “walketh” (1980). 

If you don’t understand what it means to walk “uprightly” (blamelessly NASB) (8549) either through genuine confusion or because of your theological presuppositions then look at the alternative.  Most people can understand what it means to be “crooked” (6140/1870).  You also have a choice to make today.  The question for the day isn’t, “How’s it goin’?” but “How’s it walking?”

You can put off the decision until tomorrow I guess but make sure that you understand the two different results expressed about the results of how you walk.

So?  This morning I decided again to walk with Jesus.  It was a more important question than what to wear.  How’s it walking?
