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.

(Proverbs 4:25 KJV)  Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.

It is so easy to get distracted.  I think it was the movie “Up” which brought the expression, “Squirrel!” into our daily lives.  As everyday people it doesn’t take much to get us to look and forget what we are going. 

Sometimes the distractions are major.  You don’t want to hear words like cancer, fired or divorce.  They can ruin your day.  The real ruin for us though is when we allow them to distract us from what we should be doing.  As Christians we talk about walking by faith.  That is what this verse is advocating.  Faith means keeping our eye on the ball and not listening to the catcher chant, “Hey, batter, batter....”  Faith means watching the steps when coming down from the second floor instead of watching for bugs on the ceiling.  It means moving straight ahead in a world that is trying to sidetrack us.

So?  What are you supposed to be doing today.  A verse that comes to mind is,
(Micah 6:8 KJV)  He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
That should be enough to concentrate on.
