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.

Weep or Obey

(Proverbs 7:1 KJV)  My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.

In our enlightened times we tend to regard the “commandments” (4687) of God as if they are suggestions.  Our culture likes to think that they are sophisticated that they can play with fire and, because of their wise fingers, they will not get burnt.  Old fashioned morals are for cave men, not us as an advanced species.  It is tragic that we are wrong.  We are fooling noone, even ourselves.

Generally God does not make recommendations or suggestions.  He either speaks without confusion or He remains silent.  Often we claim he is remaining silent when it is just that we are not listening.  We see our churches redefining marriage and rationalizing abortion because that is what they want God to say.  Church attenders toy with the occult and embrace materialism.

So?  Don’t let the world fool you.  Quit trying to fool yourself.  Either read and weep, or read and obey.
