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 1:31 KJV) Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

What is the result of doing things our “way” (1870)?  Can you think of a time when someone gave you a chore with specific directions and you did it your way instead?  When it comes to taking out the garbage you may get away with it but shortcuts in cooking chicken can get you poisoned.  The problem with being human is that we tend to see things from our perspective.  We expect people to see us coming.  As a result we often “eat” (398) it. 

So?  God did not give us the written word so that we would have a use for excess paper.  It is there to share the wisdom of a better way.  It is there to guide us to salvation and righteousness.  It is something you cannot do your way.
