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.

Catechism Time

(Proverbs 2:10 KJV)  When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;

When our hearts are right with God, His “knowledge” (1847) is “pleasant” (5276) to us.  There are consequences to how we stand before Him.  We read about His wrath and vengeance.  We joke about lightning striking us.  Some people practice the Christian equivalent of knocking on wood when they say something they shouldn’t.  But when we are honestly seeking Him we are met in wonderful ways.

So?  The Westminster Shorter Catechism says, “Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.”  Even if you don’t come from the Reform tradition you can understand that.
