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.

Prep School

(Proverbs 24:10 KJV)  If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.

If we knew when the crazy driver was going to pull out in front of us we would have no worries about accidents.  If we knew when someone was going to break into our home we could have the police waiting for them.  Unfortunately, life doesn’t work that way.  We are often taken by surprise.

What can we do about it?  Develop habits that reduce risk.  It is not a bad habit to look both ways after a light turns green because someone may be running the red.  It is a positive thing to wash your hands on a regular basis.  It is also a bit of insurance to spend focused time each day with the Lord and in the word.  We all get distracted but we tend to go with our training and habits.

So?  Bad days will happen.  With a little preparation we can make them less bad, or even glorious.
