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.

Say As I Do

(Proverbs 3:15 KJV)  She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.

On the surface it seems so obvious.  What “compares” (7737a) with the wisdom of God?  What could compare?  Now make another comparison.  Compare the time you spend inputting God’s wisdom and the amount of time you spend on optional activities.  Don’t compare it to time at work, how long you listen to your wife or how much you play with your children.  Compare it to TV or computer activities, hanging with the guys or detailing your car.

Who wins?

We want to tell our children, “Do as I say, not as I do.”  We also know it doesn’t work that way.

So?  Only you can set your priorities.  Only your heart can make a change.  Ask God for insight and honesty as you look at your day.
