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.

What Have You Learned?

(Proverbs 4:11 KJV)  I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

This is not Wisdom speaking, but Solomon.  He is addressing his son.  Back in verse 4 he pointed out that he was taught by his father and now it is time to pass it on.  It does us well to remember that we are not to be cul de sacs but channels.  We are given knowledge.  We pass it on.  We have made mistakes.  We share them.  We have skills.  We show others how to apply them.  In the process we build a family.  In a larger sense we build the family of God.

So?  It doesn’t stop with us.  All around us are lives that are watching and learning.  I am  afraid that I don’t always demonstrate what I really want passed on.  Hopefully I will be able to do better today.
