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.

A Billion Page Views

(Proverbs 30:1 KJV)  The words of Agur the son of Jakeh, even the prophecy: the man spake unto Ithiel, even unto Ithiel and Ucal,

Want to be famous?  How about getting one mention in the Book?  Does that qualify as famous or frustrating?  Here we have “Agur” (94).  He wrote, or dictated, this chapter in Proverbs.  It has been read by billions down through the ages and we don’t know any more about him than they knew 2,000 years ago.  Names have meanings.  His is “gathered”.  Is this something his parents gave him or a title based on his activities?  We will never know.

Your name means something but you may not know what it is.  Few people today have names given because of their character or the hopes of their parents.  Most of it is just to honor a family member or because the name sounded good.  A growing trend is to make up names or spell them in ways that have never been seen before. 

Whatever your name, the important goal is to see that it is written in the Book of Life.
(Revelation 20:15 KJV)  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
This is a result of the saving grace of Jesus when we trust in Him and, if you read the other references, live in obedience. 

So?  The question of the day is, “Is your name written in the Book of Life?”
