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.

Special Offer

(Proverbs 1:2 KJV)  To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;

Do I really want to “know” (3945) “wisdom” (2451)?  That might seem like a rhetorical question or a no-brainer, but I am not sure if that is true.  If I read over and look at the list of results I need to ask myself are they really high on my list.  I need to ask that deep down in my heart where noone else is listening.

Assume it is a holiday weekend or the beginning of vacation.  When I make a list of things I want to do will you find wisdom, understanding and justice high on the list?  Probably not.  They should be.  It does not do me much good to read a diet book if I am not serious about controlling what I eat.  It does not help me to buy an exercise machine if I never get on and put it to use or if I only use it twice a year.

So?  Proverbs has a lot to offer.  So does the rest of the Bible.  I need to get serious about accepting the offer.
