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.

Eternal Sauerkraut

(Proverbs 2:7 KJV)  He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.

Who is the “he” in this verse?  The obvious answer is God Himself, or as the previous verse identifies Him, the Lord.  I like the sense of continual storing.  It gives me the sense of a farm wife constantly canning and preserving the bounty of the day for a future need.  God’s wisdom continually expands.

It gives me a clue to how we are going to make it through eternity without boredom.  As we grow in wisdom and knowledge and revel in His presence, He will keep on moving out ahead of us.  In our finite minds we cannot comprehend this.  Keep in mind that if you could then it wouldn’t be all that marvelous.  Think of being invited to dinner to the home of a recent emigrant and being served a meal of combinations you would have never imagined.  Extend that to eternity.

So?  Who would have ever thought that sauerkraut would go well mixed in macaroni and cheese?  Someone smarter than me.  But it works.  Think of an eternity of new uses for sauerkraut.
