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.

Off the Radar

(Pro 16:15 KJV) In the light of the king's countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.

As I general rule I think it is wise to stay off the radar of anyone who has a “king” (4428) complex.  You can avoid a lot of trouble by staying away from people who enjoy giving it.  The principle extends to anyone in a position of leadership.  This verse is positive but if you include the previous verse, take note and beware.  It can be a king, hard to find in America, or a police officer.  It can be your supervisor or the president of the HOA.  Even for the good ones you never know what there mood is.

So?  Follow that great verse in Micah 6:8,
(Mic 6:8 KJV) He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
That refers to the Almighty not the local demagog.
