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.

Street Wise

(Proverbs 1:20 KJV)  Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

It is possible to know truth and “wisdom” (2451).  Wisdom “shouts” (7442) in the streets.  It is not hidden if we are willing to listen.  That is important; listening.  The problem is not a lack of answers but a lack of willingness to hear them.

The point here is that wisdom is available.  It does not hide.  At the same time if you were picturing the “street” (2351) pictured here you would notice it was not the only “voice” (6963).  It is one of many competing for our attention. 

What are you listening for?  Where are you listening?  Do you expect to hear through your ear-buds?

So?  Don’t force God to get a club to get your attention.  Spend a little time trying to sort out what he is saying from the cacophony of life.
