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.

The Twilight Zone

(Proverbs 7:9 KJV)  In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:

I have noticed that I look at the world differently in the morning than I do in the “evening” (6153/3117).  Once I am up and had my first shot of coffee my mind has a range and awareness that is totally lacking at the end of the day.  I have heard various “experts” say you should not make major decisions when you are tired.  I can see that.

The young man being observed here is heading for a fall.  Would it have made a difference if it were earlier in the day?  Maybe.  Maybe not.  I get the feeling that he has deliberately chosen this time of day because he thinks he can get away with something.  It may work that way when you are deciding to litter but it doesn’t work that way when your intent is sin.

So?  God can see around corners, through closed doors and in the dark.  Remember that next time you find yourself looking both ways, checking the mirror and listening carefully before you do something stupid.
