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.

Basic Maintenance

(Proverbs 1:25 KJV)  But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

This verse sums up the prevailing American attitude.  It also fits well with most of the world.  We sit like the three monkeys in front of the “counsel” (6098) of God.  In this case it is a matter of seeing no truth, hearing no truth and speaking no truth.  The truth is freely available and it is rejected.  Any time the forces of righteousness unite to use the democratic process to advance God’s standards an elitist judge will strike it down.  How long can the machinery of a country keep working when the basic maintenance is being ignored?

No one individual can change the direction of a country but we need to understand that many times God has intervened for the faithful remnant.  The question we need to ask ourselves, individually, is “Am I paying attention?” 

So?  If all you are able to influence is the air in the tires of society, then make sure that the air is good.  Do your part to be righteous and keep trusting God to paint the big picture.
