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.

The Moveable Type

(Proverbs 5:6 KJV)  Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.

Sinners are “moveable” (unstable NASB) (5128) and they live in ignorance.  What does it mean to be moveable/unstable?  It must be like someone who is color blind and no one has ever told them.  They don’t know any better.  I am partially color blind and did not realize it until I was drafted and had to take a test.  I don’t know if you have ever taken that test with all the colored dots.  You are supposed to pick out the numbers on the page based on the subtle differences in hue.  I could see three out of twenty.  No wonder I could never dress myself.

Now I am aware of the problem.  I avoid certain choices because I am aware of my lack.  I now ask my wife if I match.  She repeatedly tells me that everything I have goes with anything I have.  I can be stable but it takes outside help.

Fashion sinners never ask for an unbiased opinion.  Too often we sin by not asking or listening.

So?  Be aware of your weaknesses.  They are legion.  How do I know?  I am human too.  It is possible to be stable.
