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.

Lips of Service

(Proverbs 15:7 KJV)  The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.

Let’s face it.  Some people are worth listening to, others can’t even tell time accurately.  You have met both kinds.  You have probably had supervisors of both kinds.  Welcome to life.  What is it that makes the difference?  It isn’t education in itself.  Having a Ph.D. does not guarantee that you have anything to say worth listening to.  Training?  Age?  Experience?  All have value but none guarantee wisdom. 

So we don’t listen.

But you come across people who seem to have a handle on life.  You know that what they have to say is of value.  My guess is that even if they do not claim a faith in Jesus, you will find that their basic values and sense of priorities come from the Bible. 

So?  Start building your foundation.  That will help you set your priorities.  Knowing what is important can help with today’s small and large decisions.
