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.

Neighbor Love

(Proverbs 3:28 KJV)  Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.

Have you ever hid behind the Holy Spirit?  Do you ever know what is the right thing to do, what God wants from you and you still say, “Let me pray about it.”  It is a common ploy among those of us that are tight fisted. 

I think we need to take into consideration the way Jesus used “neighbor” (7453).  Remember the question that brought about the parable of the Good Samaritan.  Jesus was asked, “Who is my neighbor?”  Most people don’t realize He was quoting the Old Testament.
(Leviticus 19:18 KJV)  Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.
Jesus included our worst enemies.

So?  Be on the alert for ways in which you can help people in need, even if they are not on your wedding invitation list.
