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.

Life Is Not a Box of Lego’s

(Proverbs 9:1 KJV)  Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:

Notice the tense of this statement.  “Wisdom” (2451) has already “builded” (1129) the house.  The foundations are in.  The roof is on.  The windows are sealed.  Are you ready to move in?  It does not make sense to have an entire dwelling sitting and waiting while you sleep in your car. 

This is reminding us that the building is already finished.  This is not like getting a huge box of Lego’s for Christmas.  This is like getting the finished product.  In Lego’s that would take away the fun but in life it gives us a starting place.  Life is not a toy.  God has already supplied us with the answers to the unanswerable.  He has implied, hinted and outright stated what makes sense and what is foolish.

So?  How many times do I have to say it, read the Owners Manual.  Life is not one of those simple appliances that you can take out and plug in, it is complicated.  Read and follow.  The house is already built.
