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.

Dress to Impress

(Proverbs 7:10 KJV)  And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.

What does how you are “dressed” (7897) say about you?  We live in an increasingly casual culture.  Coats and ties have given way to shirt sleeves.  Shoes have been replace by sandals.  If you go to a wedding in a suit you will be the oddball.  It says something about us and our culture. 

How about the scrubby look of the modern male?  They still shave but now they do so to make it look like it has been a couple of days. 

How do you dress for church on Sunday?  Do you dress to impress?  Then you are wrong whatever impression you are trying to make.  Do you dress to show your respect for God?  Then whatever you are wearing is good enough.

So?  Clothes don’t make the man but they tell you what he thinks of you.  There is so much variation that you can’t make any rules.  The young man knew he was facing someone with questionable morals.  What do people know about you?
