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.

Be Right

(Proverbs 16:25 KJV)  There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

We have here a reminder that the followers of the Living God do not see things the same way as the world around them, or at least they shouldn’t.  Too often we are so focused on being inoffensive and non-judgmental that we miss the “right” (3477).  We are surrounded by a culture that is rejecting the Biblical standards of right and wrong.  To the teacher at your child’s school the only things that are evil are intolerance and people who believe there is evil.  If you are a Christian you must believe in evil because if there were no evil we would not need a savior.

We are told to be kind and courteous.  We are not told to hide the truth or embrace the lie.  If you are tempted to say that there is no difference really, read the rest of the verse.

So?  We are called to be right.  We are called to be righteous.  We have been empowered to live that way by the blood, grace and the work of the Holy Spirit.  Don’t be afraid to be right.
