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.

Focal Point

(Pro 20:22 KJV) Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.

I think the focus of this verse is the same that Jesus had with His famous statement about turning the other cheek.  It is personal.  We like to take the mention of evil and say, “What about Hitler?”  or “What about the millions killed with abortion?”  The real question is, “What about my wife?” or “What about the guy in the car in front of me?”  The real concern is our day to day attempts to justify our behavior.

Have you noticed that you are just having a bad day but the other guy is a menace to society?  The answer to this is the same as it is to many questions.  Take for instance when Peter tried to begin the comparison game,
(Joh 21:21 KJV) Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
Jesus told him the same thing He is telling us.
(Joh 21:22 KJV) Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? follow thou me.
So?  The key question in the Bible is not pre-trib or post-trib.  The real question is, “What is that to thee?”  The answer is follow.  Today.   Now.
