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.

Hidden Abominations

(Proverbs 15:26 KJV)  The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.

The KJV says “thoughts” (4284) and the NASB says “plans.”  Other translations use “devices” and “designs”.  There are different types and forms of sin.  Some sin is a momentary flash of weakness.  When faced with a choice we give in to temptation and do the wrong thing.  That is not what is being talked about here.  These are those deep seated plots that we have running through out minds just looking for a way to be expressed.  This is an attitude of self centered rebellion against the things of God.

This hatred for the things of God is obvious in our movies, books, schools and government.  It is all around us.  But even more is hidden in the hearts of mankind.  We need to make sure that we have gone to the cross and sought the cleansing of the blood of Jesus.

So?  We need to continually do an attitude check to see if the evil of the world has made any inroads into out hearts and minds.  Reflect, repent, move on.
