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 28:6 KJV)  Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.

This is a lesson in choices.  We don’t always have a choice in whether we will be “poor” (7326) or “rich” (6223).  In our modern America we have more possibilities than the historic norm but there are still limits.  Sometimes it is too late.  Sometimes it is beyond our ability.  We do have a choice whether to be straight or “crooked” (6141/1870).

There are a lot of different ways of expressing the life of “integrity” (8537).  All of them involve choices between what is moral and ethical by God’s standards and compromises that settle for less.  Sometimes the compromise is neutral, other times it is outright sin.  It is still a choice.

So?  Today will be full of choices from which white sock to take out of the drawer to a stray thought involving murder and the person who got in your face.  It is possible to make the right ones.
