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.

Happy Meals

(Proverbs 13:2 KJV)  A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence.

Do you “enjoy” (398) the produce of your mouth?  Once again the KJV is more literal.  The word is a simple word meaning “to eat”.  When I look at the definitions I see things like “devour”, “consume” and “burn up”.  It almost seems like there is a mix up in the word order.  I wonder if it is possible to say that your words will eat you.  Probably not.

When you look at yesterday do you get a warm feeling in your belly?  Are you happy about what you had to say?  How about today?

So?  I know I need to work on what I say and how I say it.  No one else can do it for me.  Of course that means I can’t do it for you either.
