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.

(Proverbs 26:7 KJV)  The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

Admit it.  You get irritated at all those empty handicap parking places.  I was in a bathroom the other day and realized that if the stall wasn’t big enough to allow a wheel-chair to turn around there could be a second throne.  As a society we have begun to adapt to the needs of those who are less fortunate.  In reality that is a blessing.  We live in a culture that is rich enough to tear out curbs and pour ramps so that people can be more mobile. 

Unfortunately we have extended that service to “fools” (3684).  That is not a good thing.  Accommodating someone who is bound to a wheel-chair shows mercy and compassion.  It makes everyone stronger.  Making allowances for fools is destroying out society. 

So?  We need to always be more discerning in our personal choices.  We need to find ways to exert our insight into God’s wisdom when it comes to picking leaders.  It occurs to me as I write that I might need to be more willing to serve to make this happen.  How about you?
