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.

Actually, It Was Your Fault

(Proverbs 26:27 KJV)  Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.

Once again we see how the Bible conflicts with modern, secular wisdom.  The mantra of modern education, sociology, psychology and government is that people are victims.  Sure they have problems, but it isn’t their fault.  We always find someone else to blame.  To be honest, there are times when that is true.  A baby cannot pick a mother and father.  That is obvious but when the child gets older he can pick his friends.  She can decide who to flirt with. 

You can’t do much about the person next to you on the plane that is coughing for the entire flight.  You can avoid HIV.  Although I have kids passing germs to me all the time I have no fear of the HIV virus.  If I come down with AIDS it will be because of a blood transfusion.

God has given us plenty of guidelines in how to live our lives. 

So?  Got problems?  It might be time for a little honesty.  Don’t accept what your college professor told you about the greedy corporations.  They did not make you take out the student loans.  You could have gone to the community college.  Accept responsibility.  One reason this is important is we must eventually admit that we are sinners so that God’s grace can work in our lives.
