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.

Heart Spots

(Proverbs 4:21 KJV)  Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.

How important is your faith?  Maybe that is too easy to answer.  Let me put it another way, how much does it take to keep you from being in church on Sunday morning?  How about Sunday evening and Wednesday?  You say your church doesn’t have evening or midweek services?  You might ask yourself what that says about their priorities.

When I ask people why their church does not have an evening service they talk about how busy life is.  They mention how many woman are working now and there just isn’t enough time to come to church on Sunday evening.  After all, the Bible doesn’t say anything about an evening service.  We live in a world of illusion if we think we have less time than they did 100 years ago.  When is the last time you had to spend the time getting the horse hitched up for the drive to church or had to rub it down and feed it on return?  Think about how long it took to make meals from scratch on a wood burning stove.  Yet in the midst of all that they found the time.  I would suggest that it was more a matter of worship being in the “midst” (8432) rather than an add-on.

So?  If you treated your job the way you treat your church how long would you have a job?  We do what is important to us.
