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.

Little Becomes Much

(Proverbs 31:12 KJV)  She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

Sometimes we read something that seems so obvious you wonder why it is mentioned in the Bible.  This would be one of them.  Of course a wife should do “good” (2896b) for her husband.  And it seems that husbands should do good for their wives.  And yet when we look around....

Maybe we don’t even need to look around.  Maybe it would be enough to look at our own lives and in our own hearts.  Fill in whatever relationship you want, the principle is the same.  How many little digs do we give out each day?  How many tasks are left undone.  How many times do we let our inner pain or frustration dictate how we act?  We have a million excuses and reasons.  God sees through them all.

So?  Take a long look at the little actions and lack of actions in your day.  Would you put them in the good, the bad or the neutral?  Tomorrow, or the rest of today, is a good place to start some changes.
