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.

Dynamite Packaging

(Proverbs 30:24 KJV)  There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:

This seems like a silly observation but in terms of wisdom, size does not matter.  You can be “little” (small NASB) (6996a) and be “exceedingly” (2449) “wise” (2450).

It is no guarantee.  We have all heard of the Napoleon complex.  Children certainly do not qualify regardless of what your local school teacher says.  But being short or lacking in physical stature is no limitation to the containment of wisdom.

So?  Accept people as they are.  Look past the package and evaluate on the contents.  You have heard it a million ways.  Make that a million and one.
