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.

(Proverbs 19:10 KJV)  Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.

I have never bought lottery ticket.  I don’t plan on buying a lottery ticket.  Every once in a leap year I think about it.  I figure it might be worth the investment to see if God wants me to be rich.  I figure He might need my help. 

The truth is, if God wanted me to be rich He would find a way without my help.  As it is, I have all that I could need and more.  There is nothing reasonable that I really want that I could not afford.  I am a saver.  I can always find a way to put away a few cents and they have a way of accumulating until my wife finds them.  I am not sure that I could handle being rich.  I think the “fool” (3684) in me would come out.  I would find that I could not handle it. 

So?  God finds ways to provide for us.  We are to work hard and be responsible.  He will see to it that our needs are supplied.
