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.

Cause and Effect

(Proverbs 9:6 KJV)  Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Why do people get in destructive ruts?  We do things that make life worse and we continue to do them.  From my perspective that would include people that voted twice for Bill Clinton and Barak Obama.  From yours it might be people who voted twice for George Bush.  People don’t seem to learn.

I have tried manudo three times.  Have I learned my lesson?  I hope so, but hope springs eternal.  People who have diabetes keep eating and living like couch potatoes.  Then they wonder why they are going blind and having a foot amputated.  Parents let their kids watch any TV, play any game, download any app, and listen to any music.  Then they wonder why they are lazy and disrespectful. 

So?  Do a little thinking.  When you find behavior that is destructive now or damning later, “forsake” (5800a) it.  Change.  Walk away.  This verse says such decisions lead to life.  The remote control is in your court.
