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.

Fat Attitudes

(Proverbs 30:12 KJV)  There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.

Have you ever found yourself doing the things that you find offensive in others?  I know I have.  And the arrogance continues.  It is so easy to fall into the trap.  I have lost weight and am in the struggle to keep it off.  We have all been there.  I want to stay there.  I also find myself getting into the frame of mind that gets critical of people who are overweight.  Who am I too judge?  I sometimes fear that if I don’t change my attitude God will remove His grace of food control.

We need to look at our victories as well as our failures.  We need to take our victories, be thankful and allow those victories to give us a heart of compassion instead of myopic vision.

So?  Find someone who struggles with an area you have grown in.  Pray for them.  You know what they go through.  Perhaps you know someone well enough to share an area of struggle you have and they can share theirs.  What a prayer meeting that would be.
