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.

Lessons in Learning

(Proverbs 9:9 KJV)  Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning.

Why would being “just” (righteous NASB) (6662) make you more teachable?  Notice the different English words used by the KJV and NASB.  The most frequent translation in both is “righteous”.  It has a moral dimension.  In order to make the right decisions you need that moral dimension.  It is more and more lacking in the judges we see making decisions.  When you wonder how the courts can come up with the things they do just remember that these are the elites that are removing the Ten Commandments and nativity scenes from public places.

This is why the social justice people will do nothing but destroy our society.  Their idea of justice is rooted in making demands for themselves and enjoying the ego trip of their public displays.  They are not really interested in the moral justice that comes from God.

So?  First, make sure you have the foundation for justice and learning.  Second, it is a political season.  I know the choices are hard and a times it seems like there is none, but get serious about being a righteous voter.  This applies when you are voting for a local garden club as much as for president.
