(Proverbs 5:7 KJV) Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
We have all used it. “Do as I say, not as I do.” Often we use this approach as a way of telling people they should walk the talk. That is good advice but it is not what Solomon is telling us today. There is a reason that God has caused the Bible to be written over the centuries and preserved over even more. It is because we need to know what is true. It is because we need to know what is right. It is so we can do as He says.
Some people think we are coming to the end times because almost the entire world has had a chance to hear the gospel. I know that in North America it would require almost a miracle to be a person who could honestly say they have never heard the claims of Christ. If you have sung a Christmas carol, stayed in a motel with a Gideon Bible in the drawer or driven by that church sign on the corner, you have had an opportunity to listen. If you attend church and have a Bible in the house you have less reason to claim ignorance.
I know that I really don’t need any new lessons. I am already aware of enough things I can work on that if God never spoke to me again I could stay busy reforming for the rest of my life.
So? We know. It is time to do.
