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.

The Window and the Chair

(Pro 17:24 KJV) Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.

Wisdom is often a matter of focus.  Picture the nature lover who is busy with the glory of a far off mountain peak and doesn’t see the ravine in front of him.  You laugh but have you seen the statistics involving people dying while they take selfies of themselves?  They will take one step back to get a better angle.  The problem is they are already on the edge of disaster. 

So?  It is great to admire the sunrise and sunset.  I have been doing that today.  Before I admire what is outside the window I need to make sure that the chair is under me before I sit down and that the coffee cup goes onto the coaster.
