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.

Cruise Control

(Proverbs 9:13 KJV)  A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knoweth nothing.

The problem here is not that a person “knows” (3045) “nothing” (1077/4100).  The problem comes because they know nothing and are content in that position.  One of the mantras of Proverbs is that we seek wisdom, knowledge and understanding.  They don’t just happen.  The woman being described is so typical of our modern mentality.  Since this was written thousands of years ago it must be a human condition not a sign of the times.

So?  Don’t be satisfied to be a party animal.  Don’t focus on gratifications but on holiness.  Growth is not an option and it is not automatic.
