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.

Handicap Compensation

(Pro 26:7 KJV) The legs of the lame are not equal: so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

What kind of handicap do you labor under?  It doesn’t take much looking to find some area in which we are weak or totally helpless.  When I think about what we call “heaven” I often think about the physical limitations I have that I expect to disappear.  Just in my eyes I will gain stereoscopic vision, real colors, no glasses and who knows what else that I am not even aware of.  We all have limitations.

We should expect to be able to function in spite of those things.  I went to get a haircut.  That in itself is not big deal.  What is shocking is I did it before my wife started nagging.  There is a guy who hangs around the barber shop who is missing a leg.  He has a prosthetic that seems to work just fine for him.  I have never heard him complain or hesitate to get into action. 

So?  If you are a fool don’t expect God to use you as a spokesman but you might clean a mean toilet.  Come to think of it there is even hope for fools to abandon their state and move forward.
