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.

Just Enough

(Pro 30:7 KJV) Two things have I required of thee; deny me them not before I die:

Does your prayer life resemble a grocery list?  I feel uncomfortable with some of the prayer requests I hear.  So often we look at God as some kind of awesome vending machine and as long as we enter the right amount of celestial change, we get the reward we wanted.  Because I have this hang-up I tend to not ask for much specifically.  I would also note that I am so blessed that there isn’t much I need to ask for.  This verse I can get on board with.

I think this is a prayer that God answers and one that we don’t like to offer.  We might have a different idea than God about what is just enough.  There are times when we might be short changed.  There are definitely times when we get more than we deserve. 

So?  It is going to be interesting to reach eternity.  I have this idea that we will at last be able to ask questions and get specific answers.  Or maybe with the resurrection mind we will see the answers that were there all the time.

I've always figured that it won't matter by then.

You mean like wondering what happens to all the toe nails we clip?
