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.

Age Your Knowledge, Not Just Your Cheese

(Proverbs 12:23 KJV)  A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness.

This assumes that prudence is a character trait of the righteous.  The righteous man “conceals” (3680) “knowledge” (1847).  I want to live a righteous life so again I am reminded that my speech patterns are a part of my walk. 

As we walk with Jesus we need to conceal what we know by taking the time to be sure of our facts.  Ponder and meditate on what you see.  The Holy Spirit does not always plant understanding in our hearts and minds as a fully developed pattern.  Time will reveal what no amount of intellect can discern.

An important part of this is the prayer of listening and the worship of reading the word.

So?  Silence can be golden and time will tell you whether it is gold you hold in your hand or just a cheap imitation.  One will turn your hand green.
