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.

A Naughty Problem

(Proverbs 1:25 KJV)  But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

Once again the KJV gets my mental juices flowing.  It says we have “set at naught” (6544a) the “counsel” (6098) of God.  The NASB simply says “neglected.”  Both mean the same but the KJV cuts to the heart of the matter. 

We are used to the concept of resetting a game or a calculator.  Sometimes it is the thing to do.  Sometimes it wipes out all that we have done previously.  Have you had the experience on your computer?  Have you ever deleted a file or an entire folder and suddenly had that sick realization that you did not back it up? 

How often have we deleted all of the wisdom and knowledge that God has given to us?  And we pay the price.

So?  Listen, learn, remember.  It makes a difference.  Don’t zero out the wisdom that God has given you again and again.  That may be the reason that Proverbs repeats things so much.
