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.

(Pro 2:15 KJV) Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths:

The KJV again uses the English “froward” (3868) but there is a difference in this Hebrew word.  That is why the NASB says “devious”.  I think a better word would be sidetracked.  It means to turn aside.  It is a picture of someone who knows where they are supposed to be going and how to get there but decides to dally.

Sometimes the distraction is momentary and no issue but when we allow the pattern to set in it becomes a destructive habit.  Have you ever missed an important appointment because you stopped to do one more thing on the way?  It may have been important and a good thing to do but it kept you from something more important.

So?  One appointment you don’t want to miss is with Jesus.  Don’t let the good distract you from the best.
