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.

And a Good Morning to You

(Pro 8:31 KJV)  Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

This morning as I write I am aware that it is a glorious morning outside.  When the girl behind the counter asked me how I was I commented on this being the kind of day when I wish I was retired and walking in the park.  It will be a blazer later, but for now it is cause for “rejoicing” (7832).

This passage is harkening back to creation and how glorious it was to be on a brand new world created by God.  And it was in a glorious universe that was custom designed to go along with it.  If I can get excited about a morning how would I respond to a cosmic view of creation?

Part of the point here is the glorious complexity that God has assembled for us.  Yes, it has been corrupted by sin.  Death is rampant.  Suffering abounds.  But so does goodness and blessing.  We also have the added advantage of having read the book and know how it ends.  I can’t wait for the New Jerusalem to descend from the heavens.  I want to see the look on the lambs face when the lion doesn’t eat it.  I want to race a comet and stand on the surface of the sun. 

So?  Join me.  It all depends on your relationship with the Lamb Who was slain and Who takes away the sins of the world.
