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.

No More Warnings

(Proverbs 6:15 KJV)  Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

Today there is no warm word of support.  There is no blazing hope.  Today there is a word of warning.  I would like to think it is just to those in the world.  If you look at the previous verses you can see that there are some people who are committed to evil.  It is a part of their life.  They thrive on it.  When the end comes there will be no new warning.  They have heard it all.

Think of the rich man who died and went to hell.  He got into a conversation with Abraham in Luke 16 and asked that they send someone to warn his brothers.  The answer was that if they would not listen to the prophets they would not believe someone returned from the dead.  We may not know when someone reaches that point, but God does.

So?  Keep being salt and light.  Witness.  Leave the results to God.  And always do a little self examination to make sure that you are not drifting into the area of the hopeless.
