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.

Truth and Change

(Proverbs 8:7 KJV)  For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.

How will we know wisdom when we see or hear it?  It will be grounded in “truth” (571).  It will correspond to real facts.  It will not change because of the winds of popular opinion.  Wisdom has nothing but contempt for political correctness or fashion.

This is a hard truth.  This is why so many people reject the God of the Bible.  He is not a God that has been designed to be user friendly.  He is not concerned about your feelings.  He is concerned about your eternal soul.  Jesus did not die so we would be happy; He died so we would be holy.

Remember Jesus and the rich young ruler.  When the boy walked away because the price was too high, Jesus did not run after Him and negotiate a deal he would accept.  He let him go.

So?  Jesus will let you go if you keep insisting on your own way.  He will cajole, urge, plead and convict but if you refuse to change, hasta la vista, baby.
