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.

Rare and Well Done

(Proverbs 29:3 KJV)  Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth his substance.

When I am not in thinking mode I wonder who would not be in favor of “wisdom” (2451).  When I actually engage my brain I realize that the opposite is true.  Wisdom is not popular today.  It probably never has been popular.  Remember the familiar words.
(Proverbs 9:10 KJV)  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
The fear of the Lord involves accepting that He is Lord.  It involves making decisions based on the principles and standards taught in the Bible.  What P&S?  How about telling the truth.  Or what about the practice of turning the other cheek.  Sobriety, decorum and moderation are not objects of praise in our culture. 

So?  People who love wisdom are rare in our day.  So are people who genuinely bow their feet at the cross of Jesus.    It is my goal.  I hope it is yours.
