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.

On the Radar

(Proverbs 28:1 KJV)  The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

How can you tell if the driver sees a police cruiser?  The car you are in slows down.  Most people worry about the police because they know they have been ignoring the speed limit.  Usually when I see the police I just get on with life.  Usually I know how fast I am going.  I know that I have nothing to fear.

That does not mean I am never pulled over.  It happened a few months ago.  The cop was a trainee looking for people to pull over to practice his routine on.  I didn’t get a ticket but I left shaking my head.  Once I was pulled over for being on my phone when my phone was in my pocket.  It happens.  Someday I may even get a ticket, but I don’t live in fear because I know I generally follow the law.

So?  There is an attitude about life that gives greater freedom.  It helps to live in a country that has checks and balances.  It helps to serve the living God.  It helps to walk in an upright manner.  Pick your life style.
