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.

Fools Come in All Months

(Pro 1:20 KJV)  Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:

This brings to mind an example Jesus gives of the judgment day.  Check out this familiar verse.
(Mat 25:32 KJV)  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
He was breaking down those before Him into two groups:  The sheep and the goats.  What divides them is how they had ministered to Him.  It is interesting that they both ask basically the same question.  The righteous asked it in verse 37 and the rest in verse 44.
(Mat 25:44 KJV)  Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
Both had heard the word proclaimed.  One had responded with an obedient spirit.  The other tried to find rational for avoiding the basic truth.

So?  God is speaking to you.  You know enough wisdom to live the day.  Are you going to obey or rationalize.  Remember, “I didn’t know” will not work on judgment day.  When I finished this I realized it would be posted on April Fools' day.
