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.

Join Heart Book

(Proverbs 27:19 KJV)  As in water face answereth to face, so the heart of man to man.

Maybe that is why the popular social sight is “Face Book” not “Heart Book.”  Most of us are happy just putting on a happy face, as the old song says.  I have very limited experience on social media.  The young adult Sunday School class I taught tried to have a group account.  For the most part, very little of what came through was the real person.  On twitter, how much of the real you can be portrayed in 140 characters?

Think of the reflections seen in water.  The slightest wind can distort what you see.  You can have fish lips appear in the middle of your forehead.  A water spider can travel across your nose.  Yet it is still reflecting what you show it. 

Cosmetics can change the water reflection.  They cannot touch the heart.  What is inside is the real you.  There is little you can do about it but Peter pointed out why the Gentiles were first accepted as brothers in Christ.
(Acts 15:8-9 KJV)  And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
So?  You can wash the dirt from your face.  The Holy Spirit can wash the dirt from your heart.  If you have not experienced that, maybe it is time to consider it.
