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.

Planting the Seeds of Your Future

(Proverbs 28:26 KJV)  He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

Our popular culture “trusts” (982) in emotions more than reason.  We spend our energy on something we call “love” and how we feel in our “heart” (3820).  Note the contrast with the previous verse on where we place our trust.  There the confidence is in the Lord, here in our own emotions.  The results are dynamically opposed. 

Where are you going to plant the seeds of your future?  If you plant your hopes in sterile, impacted soil you will get stunted produce at best.  If you plant your priorities in fertile, well watered ground you will reap a bounty.

So?  Which will it be?  Whom will you trust?  You must put all your eggs in one basket.  I vote for the Lord.  Join me if you haven’t yet.
