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.

Up for the Count

(Pro 19:20 KJV) Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

Wisdom cannot change the past.  We have all done stupid and childish things.  We have made bad choices.  We have sinned.  We can’t get over it.  We are doomed to lie in the bed we made.  Then comes Jesus.  Many consequences cannot be undone.  Joni Eareckson Tada will not regain use of her entire body in this life.  Veterans of Iraq will not grow back legs.  Aborted children cannot be reclaimed.  That is the hard truth.  The glorious truth is that with grace, forgiveness and hope we can look to change the future.

Part of that change begins now.  Part will move into overdrive after the resurrection.  The great part is that we can start today.

So?  Absorb the lessons and benefit from them.  Be prepared for the New Jerusalem that is set in a new earth.  Count on it.
