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.

Got Ears?

(Proverbs 23:19 KJV)  Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.

Have you ever had someone talking to you and when they are done you don’t have a clue to what they said?  How about the times you read a page and can’t remember what it said.  We have all been there.  If we could learn to “hear” (listen NASB) (8085) we would take a big step forward in life.  I go to church with my ears on.  I have pod-casts going with ears in range.  Do I hear what is said?  Do I hear what is meant?  Too often the answer is, “No.”

It takes work to engage your brain.  That is another reason why holy living is harder than legalism.  Legalism has a limited number of rules.  Holiness is a total, full time involvement of your whole being.

So?  Would you be satisfied with a certificate from a phony medical school?  Why settle for a counterfeit spiritual life?  Listen and live.
