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.

Giving Lip

(Proverbs 5:3 KJV)  For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:

“Honeycomb” (honey NASB) (5317) and “oil” (8081).  Good stuff, at least Biblically, yet in the context they have a negative connotation. 

There are many good things in life.  Paul makes a point of believers living in liberty.  We have been set free.
(1 Corinthians 6:12 KJV)  All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
But we are to watch for allowing even the good things to put us back in bondage to sin.

So?  Attitude and motivation are so important.  Be aware of why you do things not just what you do.  How could today’s activities go two different ways depending on your reasons?
