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.

Focus, Focus

(Proverbs 2:15 KJV)  Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

The evil men of verse 12 are “froward” (devious NASB) (3868).  What this means is that they are always taking side trips.  As I write I am on vacation.  Tomorrow we will need to make tracks.  We must get from where we are staying back to our base, about 500 miles away.  We have one day to make it.  We took three days coming.  We have one day back. 

On the way down we were free to be “devious.”  We were free to turn aside, and we did.  It was part of the plan but the plan is different this time.  We must adhere to the straight and narrow.

What is your schedule?  Are you focused on the “paths” (734) God has for you or are you always getting sidetracked.  There is a time for side trips and a time to be goal oriented.

So?  Make sure the focus is correct.  No one can do it for you.  We all have different places in the mind of God.  Make sure that you are not getting distracted from what God has in mind.
