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.

Under Cover Agents

(Proverbs 10:11 KJV)  The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.

The “righteous” (6662) are different from the “wicked” (7563).  One is open and giving.  The other “conceals” (3680). 

The righteous can be open because their motives are based on the love of God.  We are called to do what is good for others and the good of society.  That is why Christian believers have been behind what we consider the blessings of civilization:  Hospitals, schools, orphanages, respect of women, etc. 

The wicked must hide their true goals, standards and motives.  They may enjoy a public display of promiscuous sex or push perversion but they do it under the guise of “art” or “freedom of expression” or “pushing the boundaries.”  They don’t want you to understand they are out to destroy the good and clean.

So?  First, decide which side you are on.  Second, act like it.  Open sesame.
