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.

Bet on It

(Proverbs 16:33 KJV)  The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD.

I am not a gambler.  Part of the reason is that I have played poker and find out that I love it.  Addiction is just a few hands away.  Another is that I understand who pays for all those big hotels in Las Vegas.  It isn’t the winners.  I also have problems with a social disease that preys on the poor and often destroys the rich. 

In spite of that I “cast” (2904) my “lot” (1486) every day.  I choose to get out of bed and go to work.  I change lanes on the freeway.  I drive through green lights.  I eat food prepared out of my sight.  I have a confidence in life that is based on a trust in God.  I accept the fact that it rains on the just and the unjust.  I know that bacteria are no respecters of persons.  But I also know that God sends the sun to dry the rain and designed my immune system.

That does not mean that I trust the raw fish on a sushi bar.

So?  I can face today with anticipation.  Join me?
