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.

Resist the Tide

(Pro 25:1 KJV) These are also proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out.

How easy it is to forget the things that should be remembered.  How could Israel forget the wisdom of Solomon?  I guess you could ask the same thing about the history of your country.  Just as we are watching the intellectuals of our country rewrite our history and ignoring it, I am sure the same could have happened in ancient times.  In America how many people are there who have no idea what is in the Declaration of Independence?  I would guess the percentages would be similar to those who could not list the Ten Commandments.

I think one of the steps to ignorance is when we allow the professionals to take charge of the truth.  Next Sunday let’s assume that you go to church.  Look around and see how many people brought their Bible.  Watch and see if they look up the passage under consideration.  Listen and see if the preacher is actually using the verses he refers to.  Does he refer to any verses?

So?  Just because the wave has crashed and the water is flowing down hill does not mean that we can’t stand up and keep moving inland.  Pay attention and apply what you know.  It may keep you away from the sharks.
